Fiber Characteristics
Targhee-Columbia wool is sourced from Wyoming to make Shelter, Loft, and Quarry – this breed’s lofty, warmth-trapping fleeces deftly combine the softness and elasticity of fine wool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of medium wool Columbia. This fiber’s versatile mingling of wearability and durability particularly shines in woolen-spun yarns and is wonderful for next-to-skin wear, outerwear, and heirloom pieces for the home.

Dye Process
The entire palette is created from a handful of base colors, ensuring harmonious coordination in colorwork projects or when pairing hand knitted garments and accessories. 

Brooklyn solid colors of Loft are spun from undyed white wool, then skein dyed into brilliant nature-inspired shades that pair beautifully with our heathered colorways.
