Meadow Targhee and Silk Worsted Hand Dyed Yarn
80% Superwash Targhee
Targhee is a close cousin to Merino. It's one of my favorite wools because of its bouncy, squishable texture and wearability. For those without sensitive skin it is plenty soft enough for next to skin wear. It just has a bit more tooth and grab than a merino wool.
The Targhee breed of sheep was developed in the 1920's and 30's in Dubois, Idaho. It was named for the Targhee National Forest where the sheep grazed in the summer. This wool is grown and processed in the USA.
These are extra large 4+ ounce skeins.
There are 6 skeins in this dyelot.
Skeins pictured are skeins for sale- although all skeins were dyed in the same pot, due to the nature of hand dyed yarn some variation is normal.
This yarn is superwash, but I still recommend hand washing in cold water due to the silk content.
