***Please read before ordering!!!***

After nearly two months, we are still waiting on our Targhee Worsted shipment and are not taking orders for it currently.
 
I am very, very sorry and sad for this inconvenience. 
 
We will make an announcement when it is back in stock.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I fell in love with Targhee sheep and their crazy good wool years and years ago when I had loads of spinning time. It is as much a joy to spin as it is to knit. It's so lofty that you expect it to just float away and it seriously could with the amount of elasticity it has. It might not be ultra soft like a very fine merino, but it's still soft enough, and it will wear so very well. We have it in Bulky and Worsted for now as we see lots and lots of sweaters and outergarments in its future. Targhee Bulky is a four ply  and the Worsted is a three ply.

Our Targhee is both raised and milled domestically. Targhee is one of America's youngest breeds and is named after the National Forest where they grazed in the summer. The forest was named after the Chief of the Bannock tribe of the Northern Paiute. I love the history the breed name holds, so why not keep it as the yarns name.
