Mossy Woods Targhee

Regular price $23.69 Sale

I always feel a sort of magic when I discover a mossy patch of woods. Like I've happened upon a fairy's home. Or maybe a family of gnomes are hiding out just behind that tree.

*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.

A domestic wool, the Targhee breed was created in Idaho in the 1920s by cross breeding Rabouillet rams with Corriedale and Lincoln/Rambouillet ewes.  The resulting wool produced from these sheep is soft (this particular top is between 23 and 24 microns), with a staple length around 4 inches.  As a finer wool, it wears quite well and the natural bounce will lend itself to cozy, and resilient fabrics.
