Shelter is a high quality yarn. Its rustic feel and the irregularity of the thread are an integral part of its nature. Once knit, Shelter achieves its full beauty after a wet blocking, as each stitch relaxes and bonds with its neighbours to produce a plush fabric with a halo.
Brooklyn Tweed recommends alternating skeins while knitting to blend the color evenly.
As a result of its woolen-spun manufacturing process, Shelter is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges:
- 5 stitches to 1″ | Suggested Needle: 4½ mm (US 7)
- 4½ stitches to 1″ | Suggested Needle: 5 mm (US 8)
- 4¼ stitches to 1″ | Suggested Needle: 5½ mm (US 9
