Traditional Wool - The Original Targhee/Columbia Blend!

The Chester family began breeding and development of the Targhee/Columbia Sheep in the late 1990’s to produce a high-end, luxury fiber and after nearly ten years in development the traditional wool line was born. This fiber creates a yarn that blends together loft and softness. As the originators of this beautiful blend, we hope you enjoy the Traditional Collection!

Hand wash in COLD water with mild detergent or machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle. Allow to dry naturally on a flat surface. DO NOT DRY CLEAN so as to retain the natural lanolin oils in the wool.

A percentage of the natural lanolin has been deliberately retained in the yarn. This helps to protect the wool and act somewhat as a water repellent for the garment.

Approximately 170 yards 2 Ply Yarn spun on the traditional woolen system. Gauge: Approx. 4 sts = 1 inch - size 8 needles This wool is machine washable on the delicate cycle in cold water. Dry Flat - Do not tumble dry. The spinning process and the breed of sheep this wool comes from makes it durable and machine washable without a chemical process. It becomes softer with each washing. Does not felt easily.

Older putups were 210 yds/4 ozs. The Cestari website now lists this yarn in 3.5 oz./100 gram skeins with 170 yds. Please adjust yardage on stash pages and do not create a new yarn entry. This is the same yarn.

Also available at one time in 1 pound put ups of 840 yards.
