Yarn > Brooklyn Tweed > Quarry
Quarry is a chunky brother to Shelter and Loftinspired by roving-style “unspun” yarns, offered in pillowy 100-gram skeins. They begin with three strands of the same lofty, woolen-spun Targhee-Columbia fleece, but rather than twisting the individual plies they nestle them together and gently spin the whole trio. The result is a plump yarn that looks like a single ply and has greater tensile strength and stitch definition than a true unspun yarn. Quarry has a soft and rustic hand; since they never subject our wool to harsh chemical scouring, you’ll find the occasional fleck of vegetable matter that remains as evidence of the sheep’s life on the Wyoming rangeland. The yarn’s one-directional twist may cause it to twirl between the needles and the ball while you’re knitting, but the fabric will be well balanced with no biasing.
