SHELTER began humbly as the answer to a simple question: With our abundance of natural & industrial resources, why is there such a tangible absence of American yarns commercially available to handknitters?

We sought to find an American fleece whose fiber would bring both softness and durability to the table. The Targhee-Columbia cross mixes a high-crimp Targhee Finewool (21-25 microns) for softness and elasticity with an all-purpose Columbia Mediumwool (24-30 microns) that provides warmth, structure and strength.

The result? A distinctive wool with a story to tell -- designed, sourced and produced completely on American soil.

SHELTER is spun in Harrisville, NH -- an historic mill town where woolen-spun yarns have been produced for weavers and knitters since 1794.

A woolen preparation allows the yarn to maintain large amounts of air between its fibers, making lofty and light fabrics that are warm without being dense.

Globally speaking, we think that knitters should be able to procure wools of high-quality that directly support farmers, mills, and designers from our own back yard, which has been our goal from day one.

Hope you enjoy!
