🇺🇸 🐑 This is a special yarn made with 100% wool from Targhee sheep raised in the US. This is truly a 100% product of the US, from the development of the breed to the rearing, shearing, and the processing of the wool top.
This yarn is primarily dyed to order here on San Juan Island. MORE COLORS AVAILABLE! I can dye up any color that I use for Whimsical Colors Merino Bliss DK in this yarn too. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a color.
Targhee sheep produce beautiful wool. The average wool micron count is between 22-25 microns, giving this wool a wonderful next to skin softness and comfort. The average staple length is between 3-5 inches. It has good white color and takes dye well. The selective breeding for the wool quality has been focused on staple strength and not compromise the micron count, so the wool has excellent elasticity and a silky feel. The fabric is lively, supple, elegant, and strong enough to hold up to everyday wear.
