DID YOU KNOW we also sell pre-selected yarns in ready-to-order kits?
Fingering-weight Loft from Brooklyn Tweed channels Targhee-Columbia wool’s airy bounce into feather-light lace, accessories, and garments. Like its big sibling Shelter, Loft is a woollen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, specially designed for unique lightness of hand. It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles.
Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric. Lace garments 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.
