Targhee Sweater

4 items left

I adore Targhee wool: it's next-to-skin soft, color loving, and incredibly soft and cushy.  It's hard-wearing and prone to less pilling than merino. In short: my perfect sweater yarn.

I am delighted to introduce my Targhee Sweater base which is a plump worsted weight (that knits up closer to Aran) and is a friendly non-superwash wool. It's three-quarters fine wool (like Merino) and one-quarter long wool, which is what makes it so perfect: strong and soft together. It's fully American-grown, spun and made.

For a single skein project, I highly suggest the Hatdana pattern.

For sweaters, nearly any pattern with a gauge of 18 to 20 stitches per 4 inches will look gorgeous. Some of my favorites to knit with my Targhee Sweater are The Weekender, Nurtured and the Namu sweater.

100% non-superwash American Targhee wool
220 yards per 100g
3 ply construction

Happiest at 18 to 20 sts per 4 inches, which is usually achieved on a US size 7 or 8 needle (4.5mm or 5mm)

Warm Yarn, Warm Service

The skein of Targhee sweater yarn I received is lovely, rustic without being scratchy, sturdy and inviting at the same time. The color is a sophisticated semi-solid with just enough variegation to add depth to the stitches. It's destined to become a cabled hat--and I anticipate that it will be warm, robust, and a good match of yarn to knitted project. I preordered with confidence, knowing that Little Skein in the Big Wool offers customer service that's prompt and reliable. I am pleased with my order and will definitely return.

Gorgeous Yarn, Delightful Purchase Experience

I purchased a large quantity of the Targhee sweater yarn to make matching sweaters for myself and my daughter. I have not cast on yet but the yarn is sooooo beautiful and squishy. I am planning cabled sweaters and I just know this yarn will be perfect to make the cables pop! It was very easy to preorder via the website and the yarn arrived very quickly.

Lovely yarn, lovely color

Lovely squishy skein of the new Targhee Sweater yarn. I love the sock yarn, so I can't wait to cast on for my Hatdana. I really love the way the yarn takes the dye and the blue in Hudson is very pretty.
