Shelter is an American Targhee-Columbia wool yarn entirely made in the US. It is a 2-ply woolen spun yarn, 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. It’s ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets. Shelter is fleeced-dyed and blended in 45 heathered colors.
Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA. The wool is Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia wool. The fleece is then dyed at Littlewood in Philadelphia, PA and then woolen spun at Harrisville Designs in Harrisville, NH.
