Beach (DK)

Our flagship line of DK yarn made from US Superwash Targhee wool.

What is Targhee?  Targhee is an American breed of sheep that was created in 1926 from Rambouillet, Corriedale, and Lincoln breeds.  It's soft like Merino and can be worn close to the skin.  It has great crimp, so it's a bouncy yarn.  It holds stitch definition so it's perfect for cables and raised stitches.
