FIBER CHARACTERISTICS

Targhee sheep from Montana and South Dakota provide their distinctively thick and heavy fleeces for Arbor. This American breed is a finewool, bearing the softness of its distant Merino ancestry, but with durability enhanced by additional longwool genetics. Targhee wool has an especially elastic quality that, when combined with worsted spun construction, produces plush yet sturdy fabrics suitable for next-to-skin wear.

GAUGES

Arbor’s springy worsted-spun construction is suitable for a wonderful range of gauges and can be used interchangeably with Dapple and Re-Ply Rambouillet:

  • 5¼ – 6 stitches to 1”
  • Suggested Needle: 3.75 - 4.5 mm (US 5-7)
  • Suggested Hook: 4.5 - 5.5 mm (US 7 - I-9)

DYE PROCESS

Arbor is spun from undyed white wool, then skein dyed after spinning into a saturated palette of solid hues that let textured stitches and cables shine, create crisp colorwork, and highlight the natural luster of the wool fibers.

CARE

Arbor is a handcrafted product. For best results, we recommend alternating skeins when joining in a new skein for even color distribution.
