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