Caravan Superwash Wool/Silk Worsted Weight Yarn
Caravan has been dyed to a rich array of classic colors. Targhee is a newer sheep bred in the United States starting in 1926. They are a cross between Rambouillet, Columbia and Corriedale, resulting in a sheep that has a long staple wool, that makes for a fine quality yarn. The silk with the superwash targhee creates a fabric that will hold it's shape but still have that sheen and slight drape that silk is known for. These skeins are perfect for sweaters, scarves, hats, and shawls.
