    Targhee Wool Characteristics

    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.

  • Care

    We recommend alternating skeins while knitting to distribute the color evenly.

    WET-BLOCKING:

    1. Fill a sink or basin with cool water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
    2. Soak work for 10 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
    3. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
    4. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
