Shelter is a Loop favorite. We choose it again and again for hats, scarves, blankets, and sweaters that are light weight and warm in enchanting colors.
Made from 100% American wool in an historic New England mill, the fleece is dyed before it's spun. Several shades are blended to make each color of Shelter, which gives the finished fabric a rich depth and creates a palette that's ideal for color knitting.
Shelter is woolen spun, which means the fibers are spun in the opposite direction of most yarns. The result is a light weight and warm yarn that's ideal for larger and more textured garments and accessories.
