Targhee Sweater

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.

For a single skein project, I highly suggest the Hatdana pattern, and I am also offering sweater quantities in my Rhinebeck palette.

Targhee 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)

Browse through the pictures to see a few of the Targhee Sweaters we've knit:

  • Blue cabled sweater is Talcott in Hudson.
  • Light blue sweater is The Weekender in Moon Snail
  • The in progress yellow sweater is Nurtured in a fade combo of Honey, Cider Donuts, and Cinnamon Sugar.

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.
