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. Ideal for sweaters, coats, blankets, and cozy accessories.
Developed, sourced, processed, spun and dyed 100% in the USA.
