Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota lend their distinctive fleece to Brooklyn Tweed's Arbor yarn. This fleece is a finewool, bearing the softness of its distant Merino ancestry, but with a durability enhanced by additional longwool genetics. It also has an elastic quality that, when combined with worsted-spinning as in Arbor, produces plush and dense, yet sturdy fabrics suitable for next-to-skin wear.

Arbor's short skeins make it great for colorwork projects. It's a gorgeous sweater yarn!
