Cozy, squishy and warm! I can’t wait to snug this Winter Honey by Andrea Mowry around my neck! 🐑💗🐑

A perfect pattern for this wonderful yarn! Thanks for the review. -Laura

Not for me

Shelter is a lovely yarn but after doing a swatch I realized I am sensitive to this yarn - itchy hands. I have returned the skeins for a store credit.

It's a good thing there are lots of other beautiful yarns to knit with! Thanks for the review.-Laura

Brooklyn tweed soot is a beautiful flecked color and very nice to knit with. Holds shape nicely.

You've noticed one of the nicest things about Brooklyn Tweed Shelter; each color has color flecks that add to the color depth and makes the colors harmonious with one another. Glad you're enjoying knitting with this beautiful yarn. Thanks for the review.-Laura
