A nod to Monty Python and also Roald Dahl's The Witches, where all the witches had a tinge of purple to their eyes.

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.
This wool top has been superwash treated, which will help prevent felting in the washing process.
