Elemental Stripe - Targhee Sock Yarn

Did you know that metals burn in bright colors?  Yup, they do!  In a really loose form of actually using my Chem minor, I took the ideas of these flames and put together 4 warm colors and 4 cool colors to create Elemental.

This is a brand new yarn, it’s a 3 ply with a nice twist on it….sturdy enough for socks, but a nice hand. It’s a blend of superwash Targhee and nylon.  Targhee is a sheep breed developed here in the USA in 1926 from Rambouillet, Columbia and Corriedale crosses.  The result is a dual purpose (good meat AND fleece) sheep that is well suited to the places it is popular with farmers….Montana, Wyoming, and South Dakota.  What does it mean for us knitters?  Targhee has that special fineness of merino, but is a bit sturdier.  And you can feel good that it came from as close to you as possible, and supports the renewing of the wool industry here in the USA.
