Brooklyn Tweed Shelter
This versatile woolen spun yarn is comprised of 100% American Targhee-Columbia wool and it is oh-so lofty! Shelter achieves full beauty after wet blocking and brings texture and depth to simple knitted fabrics like garter stitch and stockinette. A true staple, Shelter is ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.
Like its fingering-weight sibling Loft, Shelter is fleeced-dyed and blended in 45 heathered colors.
