Wonderful World Targhee
I see trees of green
Red roses, too
I see em bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself, "What a wonderful world."
*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.
