American Targhee-Columbia wool shines in Shelter, a 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. It’s ideal for knitting sweaters of every variety, winter accessories, and blankets.
