About Targhee: Notes from The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook

The Targhee sheep was born of practicality. In 1926, USDA researchers bred Rambouillet rams with Corriedale and Lincoln/Rambouillet eyes and back crossing the offspring with each other. They did this to make a dual purpose sheep, good for meat and fleece.
This resulted in a fairly long wool that is fine with loft and elasticity, great for “making soft, cozy, resilient textiles that feel indulgent, yet wear well.
Using a light touch in spinning will help keep the fibers flowing.
Targhee also felts well.
