Loft is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn, gently woolen-spun from soft, springy American Targhee-Columbia wool. This distinctive spinning process gives Loft a unique bounce and airiness, with a traditionally handcrafted appearance, ideal for lightweight garments and accessories, lace, and nuanced colorwork. Handle gently while knitting, then wet block to see Loft bloom into full beauty.


Brooklyn Tweed sources Targhee-Columbia wool from Wyoming to make Shelter, Loft, and Quarry – this breed’s lofty, warmth-trapping fleeces deftly combine the softness and elasticity of fine-wool Targhee with the robust substance and warmth of medium-wool Columbia. This fibre’s versatile mingling of wearability and durability particularly shines in woolen-spun yarns and is wonderful for next-to-skin wear, outerwear, and heirloom pieces for the home.

To create each heathered colourway of Loft, Brooklyn Tweed combines brightly dyed hues of unspun wool in precise proportions, as if mixing paint. When spun into yarn, these saturated solids meld into complex and beautiful blends that give vibrant depth to even the simplest knitted fabrics. The entire palette is created from a handful of base colours, ensuring harmonious coordination in colourwork projects or when pairing hand knitted garments and accessories. 

The solid colours of Loft are spun from undyed white wool, then skein dyed into brilliant nature-inspired shades that pair beautifully with the heathered colourways.

When you need a little more tensile strength, whether for seaming or because you’re about to put a group of stitches under pressure with a big cabling maneuver, simply twirl your working yarn a few revolutions in the direction of the ply twist to strengthen it.

For extra durability, you may wish to seam your Loft projects with a worsted-spun yarn.


  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
  3. Soak work for 15 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
  4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
