    The distinctive character of Brooklyn Tweed wool shines in this versatile medium-weight yarn. 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.

    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 as the wool is never treated with harsh chemicals. Garments knit from Shelter achieve their full beauty after a wet blocking. 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.

  • Brooklyn Tweed Loft

    , ,

    100% wool
    250m / 50g
    24-28-32 sts = 10 cm on needle sizes 3.5-2.75-2 mm

    Like Shelter, Loft is a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, especially designed for unique lightness of hand. It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles. Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric.
    Loft has great flexibility of gauge; it can be knit on 2mm (US 0) needles for a dense and durable fabric or on 4mm (US 6) needles for ethereal open work. Two strands of Loft held together can substitute for Shelter in patterns where you’d like greater stitch definition or a marled fabric of two colors.


  • Brooklyn Tweed Quarry

    , ,

    100% wool
    182m / 100g
    14-12 sts = 10 cm on needle size 6 – 8 mm

    Quarry is a chunky brother to Shelter and Loft inspired by roving-style unspun yarns but it is actually a three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun fleece, but rather than twisting the individual plies they nestle them together and gently spin 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.
