Quarry is a chunky sibling to Shelter and Loft, inspired by roving-style “unspun” yarns and offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. Three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia fleece are gently spun together into a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn. Quarry loves to cable and beautifully renders all kinds of textural stitch work. It’s ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories. Fleece-dyed and blended into 15 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.
