Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend us their distinctive fleece for our Arbor yarn. This fleece is a finewool, bearing the softness of its distant Merino ancestry, but with a durability enhanced by additional longwool genetics. It also has an elastic quality that, when combined with worsted-spinning as in Arbor, produces plush and dense, yet sturdy fabrics suitable for next-to-skin wear.
We recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly.
