Targhee / nylon SW sock yarn Plum purple
Targhee is a wonderful wool to wear next to the skin. It was developed in Idaho in the 50s from Rambouillet, Corriedale, and Lincoln sheep and is fine 21-25 microns.
This yarn is grown and processed in the US and I dye it. After dyeing the yarn fulled quite a bit and I think it will make some very comfy socks.
Each skein has:
about 455 yards
90% super wash Targhee wool
100% made in the USA
gauge, about 7-7.5 sts/ inch
Machine washable, I wash with like colors on cold. I usually air dry my socks.
The color is "Plum", it has dark to light plum purple with little dashes of turquoise or blue in most skeins. One skein is mostly plum to dark plum. I compare the photos to the yarn in front of me and do the best to see that it matches. My monitor and your monitor may not show color in the exact same way.
