The distinctive character of Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, Brooklyn Tweed's versatile medium-weight yarn. The Targhee-Columbia cross mixes a high-crimp Targhee Finewool (21-25 microns) for softness and elasticity with an all-purpose Columbia Mediumwool (24-30 microns) that provides warmth, structure and strength.

Garments knit from Shelter achieve their full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbors to produce an even, light, plush fabric with a halo. You shouldn’t notice any change in gauge.

Shelter is designed to be a workhorse yarn that invites cables, ribbing, textured stitch motifs, open work, plain stockinette and garter stitch. We think it’s ideal for sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.

For a fingering weight yarn similar in character to Shelter, try Brooklyn Tweed Loft.

Shelter is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Its two plies are gently twisted to preserve that buoyant quality, so Shelter is significantly more delicate than most commercial yarns. Don't pull too hard or it will come apart. Woolen-spun yarns are also more adaptable in gauge, as they can compress to a dense sport weight or bloom to cohere as a gauzy fabric when worked on large needles.

Shelter has a dry, soft hand and a faintly rustic nature; woolen spinning sometimes results in slightly thinner or thicker sections, and you’ll find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter that proves our wool is never treated with harsh chemicals.
