Tina from Blue Moon fell in love with Targhee sheep and their crazy good wool years and years ago when she 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. Blue Moon has it in Bulky and Worsted for now, they see lots and lots of sweaters and outergarments in its future. Targhee Bulky is a four ply and the Worsted is a three ply.
Blue Moon's Targhee is both raised and milled domestically. Targhee is one of America's youngest breeds and is named after the National Forest where the sheep grazed in the summer. The forest was named after the Chief of the Bannock tribe of the Northern Paiute. Blue Moon loves the history the breed name holds, so why not keep it as the yarn's name.
