Brooklyn Tweed Loft
Brooklyn Tweed Loft fingering-weight yarn channels Targhee-Columbia wool's airy bounce into featherlight lace, accessories, and garments.
Loft is a 4ply / fingering weight yarn, woolen spun from Targhee-Columbia wool. The distinctive spinning process and light twist give Loft a unique bounce and airiess, ideal for feather-light lace, accessories, and garments. It is not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles. Loft is fleece-dyed and blended in 45 heathered colours.
Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric. Lace garments should open up to reveal stitch motifs with relatively mild blocking. 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 colours.
