Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, Brooklyn Tweed's versatile 2-ply worsted-weight yarn. Shelter is woolen spun, meaning the fibers remain in a lofty jumble that traps air and offers remarkable warmth and lightness. Once knit, Shelter achieves its full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbors to produce a plush fabric with a halo. We think it’s ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets. The original Shelter colors have been fleeced-dyed and blended in lots of heathered colors. The new solid colors are dyed in the skein for a saturated solid color.
