Loft is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn, woolen spun from Targhee-Columbia wool. The distinctive spinning process and light twist of the two plies gives Loft a unique bounce and airiness. Ideal for lightweight garments and accessories, ethereal lace patterns, and nuanced colorwork.  Like its worsted weight sibling, Shelter, Loft is fleece-dyed and blended in 45 heathered colors.

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.

Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA.
