Shelter’s smaller sibling, Loft is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn, gently woolen-spun from soft, springy American Targhee-Columbia wool. This distinctive spinning process gives Loft a unique bounce and airiness, with a handcrafted, heathered finish. Ideal for lightweight garments and accessories, lace, and nuanced colorwork. Handle gently while knitting, then wet block to see Loft bloom into full beauty.

We source Targhee-Columbia wool from Wyoming to make Shelter, Loft, and Quarry – this breed’s lofty, warmth-trapping fleeces deftly combine the softness and elasticity of finewool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of mediumwool 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.

As a result of its airy woolen-spun construction, Loft works well at a wonderful range of gauges:

  • 6 - 8 stitches to 1”
  • Suggested Needle: 2 - 3.5 mm (US 0 - 4)
  • Suggested Hook: 2.25 - 4 mm (US B-1 - G-6)


To create each colorway of Loft, we combine brightly dyed hues of unspun wool in precise proportions, as if mixing paint. When spun into yarn, these saturated solids meld into complex and beautiful blends that give vibrant depth to even the simplest knitted fabrics. 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.


Loft is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.

When you need a little more tensile strength, whether for seaming or because you’re about to put a group of stitches under pressure with a big cabling maneuver, simply twirl your working yarn a few revolutions in the direction of the ply twist to strengthen it.

For extra durability, you may wish to seam your Loft projects with a worsted-spun yarn like Peerie.
