Inspired by classic Shetland wools, Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter has become a new American classic! It is a 100% homegrown US product, from its wool, which comes from Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia sheep, to its spinnery, which is in the historic mill town of Harrisville, New Hampshire where woolen yarns have been spun since 1794. Shelter is a worsted weight, woolen-spun, 2-ply yarn with an amazingly resilient loft. It's also subtle, soft and beautiful! Use Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter for sweaters, hats and scarves and knit a classic! PLEASE NOTE: You may find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter in Shelter, proof that it's never treated with harsh chemicals!
