Targhee Wool Characteristics
Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend their distinctive fleece for Brooklyn Tweed 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.
(Note: Colors that Brooklyn Tweed has retired but we still have in stock are marked – Discontinued. Get them while you can!)
