Targhee Wool Roving
Targhee sheep were bred for the mountainous areas of western American mountain ranges, and are one of the youngest breeds in the United States, having first been bred in the 1920s as a multipurpose sheep with soft wool and long fibers. Named for a national forest located in Wyoming, Idaho and Utah, these sheep are quite popular among ranchers in the north central parts of the United States, but have begun to be increasingly popular the western and midwest states.
Targhee is a soft wool with great loft and elasticity, and its long fibers make this wool a delight to spin.
This roving is sold by the ounce.
