We think so! However, softness is very subjective, especially when we’re talking about fabrics and fibers that touch our skin. That said, it can help to know the micron count of a yarn, as the micron is the most common international unit of measurement for fiber softness.
The smaller the micron count, the finer (and therefore likely softer) the fiber; the higher the micron count, the rougher the fiber. This resource page gives more information about our breed-specific wool yarns in relation to their unique characteristics. You can also find the micron count for each of our yarns under Specs on the right side of the yarn’s page on our website.
We have also found that fabrics made with our Targhee-Columbia wool yarns tend to soften up considerably with washing and wear, especially when blocked with a lanolin wool wash.
