Almanac: Bluewater sailing. This seafarer’s blend of three blues is shaded with black and enlivened with a few frisking whitecaps. This stout and cheerful hue suits almost everyone.

Due to the closing down of one of the dye houses who handle this product, Brooklyn Tweed has advised us that it may take until 2023 before production resumes for this product.  We have done our best to stock up as much as our space permits, but we are not expecting to receive new stock for quite some time.  With that in mind, please be sure to purchase what you need for your project, as we cannot get more for the time being!

Fingering-weight Loft channels Targhee-Columbia wool’s airy bounce into feather-light lace, accessories, and garments. Like Shelter, Loft is a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, specially designed for unique lightness of hand. It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles. Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric. Lace garments should open up to reveal stitch motifs with relatively mild blocking. Loft has great flexibility of gauge; it can be knit on 2mm needles for a dense and durable fabric or on 4mm needles for ethereal open work. Two strands of Loft held together can substitute for Shelter in patterns where you’d like greater stitch definition or a marled fabric of two colors.
