  • Woolen spun in New Hampshire at Harrisville Designs

As a result of its woolen-spun manufacturing process, Shelter is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges:

  • 5 stitches to 1" | Suggested Needle: 4½ mm (US 7)
  • 4½ stitches to 1" | Suggested Needle: 5 mm (US 8)
  • 4¼ stitches to 1" | Suggested Needle: 5½ mm (US 9)

    Description: 

    The Targhee-Columbia breed combines the softness and elasticity of finewool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of mediumwool Columbia. This versatile mingling of wearability and durability makes Targhee-Columbia suitable for next-to-skin wear, outerwear, or heirloom pieces for the home. We source this breed for Shelter, Loft, and Quarry; the woolen construction of these yarns further enhance the fleece’s lofty and warmth-trapping characteristics.

    Shelter is a great choice for sweaters.
