    Fiber Characteristics

    Finewool Targhee sheep raised in Montana and South Dakota provide their distinctively dense fleeces for Arbor Lodge. This American breed has all the softness of its Merino forebears, with added structure from longwool genetics. Targhee wool has an especially elastic quality ideal for worsted spinning, knitting up into plush, sturdy fabrics suitable for next-to-skin wear.

    Dye Process

    Arbor Lodge is spun from undyed white wool, then skein dyed after spinning into a saturated palette of solid hues that let textured stitches and cables shine, create crisp colorwork, and highlight the natural luster of the wool fibers.

  • Gauges

    Arbor Lodge's springy worsted-spun construction is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges and can be used interchangeably with Quarry:

    • 3 - 3½ stitches to 1"
    • Suggested Needle: 6 - 8 mm (US 10 - 11)
    • Suggested Hook: 6.5 - 9 mm (US K-10½ - M-13)
  • Care

    Arbor Lodge is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.

    Wet-Blocking

    1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
    2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
    3. Soak work for 15 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
    4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
