    Brooklyn tweed Loft

    Posted by cindy on 4th Oct 2021

    I have used this yarn before in another sweater and loved it so much I am using it again for a new sweater. I love the way it feels when knitting and how it really showed off the colorwork. It softens and blooms after washing and blocking. Love this yarn.

    Making a second BT/Agnes. I love both the pattern and the yarn. I ordered Sweatshirt, Snowbound and Almanac which is the color I wasn't sure of, never having seen it in person. It's. a dark blue that isn't navy but almost greenish /charcoal in tint (if that makes any sense.) The Loft makes a beautiful Agnes and I can't wait to get it done. Loft is a sturdy yarn that feels soft and wears beautifully.

    This is probably my favorite yarn. I have knit 6 sweaters from it so far. The finished fabric is light weight and a delight to wear. I have knit it anywhere from 4 st./inch (16 gauge) to 5.5 st./inch (22 gauge) which is looser than the band recommends but this yarn blooms beautifully to accommodate that. Honestly, if I could only have one yarn forever it would be this. And the Yarnery is amazing. Free shipping. And they wind my skeins too.

    I love this yarn in part because it feels like the wool it is but is not harsh. I knit one sweater with Newsprint that I love. Now I'm knitting BT's Agnes in Fossil, Cast Iron and Long Johns for a friend. When the yarn arrived I knew I had to make one for myself so I ordered more of the same. What surprised me the most was the intensity of the red of the Long Johns. I find most wool reds disappointing but not this. Loft blooms just a little when wet blocked. It is a great yarn.

    I purchased Loft in Caraway for the contrast color for a shawl. I love the feel and look of this yarn.

    Loft has so many colors it’s hard to make a selection.

    I love knitting with woolen spun yarn and Loft is among the best. I love their colors too--vibrant and complex. Woolen yarn is light and holds heat well, so things knit from this yarn are WARM! I'm using this to knit the Weather or Knot scarf KAL. I knit two rows each day and the feeling in my hands, I really want to knit the next row, but I must wait until the next day. I love the feel of it in my hands too.

    This yarn for the Stonehaven scarf feels like butter when I'm knitting. I love it

    Great colors, American made

    Posted by Mark on 13th Jan 2016

    One of the best ranges of color available in yarn. Colors go well together. Love that it's 100% American made. But it is critical due to its lightness that it is wound carefully and knitted gently. Once you wet block it the fabric becomes more durable. Well worth the extra attention!

    Definitely my favorite online store. Thanks so much for winding my yarn and speedy delivery. I couldn't be more thrilled. Loft is a beautiful fiber.

    This yarn "blooms" after blocking and gets softer
    Great yarn !!!!
