Quarry is a chunky brother to Shelter and Loft inspired by roving-style "unspun" yarns, offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. It begins with three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia fleece, but rather than twisting the individual plies, the mill nestles them together and gently spins the whole trio.

The result is a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn. Nevertheless, it is significantly more delicate than most commercial yarns. Don't pull too hard or it will come apart.

Quarry is offered in a palette of heathered colors. The structure of this yarn blends the hues in a slightly striated way, reminiscent of geological formations, so Brooklyn Tweed gave each color the name of a mineral or gemstone.

This yarn loves to cable and beautifully renders all kinds of textural stitch work. Despite its soft structure, it can be worked at looser gauges without loss of integrity to the fabric. We think it's ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories.

Quarry has a soft and rustic hand; since Brooklyn Tweed never subjects their wool to harsh chemical scouring, you will find occasional flecks of vegetable matter that remain as evidence of the sheep's life on the Wyoming rangeland.

The yarn's one-directional twist may cause it to twirl between the needles and the ball while you're knitting, but the fabric will be well balanced with no biasing. Quarry knits will bloom to become cohesive and supple after a wet blocking. You shouldn't notice any change in gauge.

Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.

While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
