Knitter's Review
April 8, 2010
Targhee and tulips

On the western range, a uniquely new American sheep breed, called Targhee, was developed in the 1920s. Its fleece when spun is squeezable and makes for a fantastic sweater yarn.

The popular breed has only one person offering a commercial spun wool yarn on a large scale. And, that's Patti of Sweet Grass Wool. This week I take you behind the scenes for a close look at this Montana gem.

This Weekend
Join Franklin Habit, Galina Khmeleva, and Karen Ratto-Whooley at the Addison Conference Center in Addison, Texas, for DFW Fiberfest 2010. Workshops, a marketplace, signings and meetups take place from Friday to Sunday. Meanwhile, in Greencastle, Indiana, more than 100 vendors will be set up at the Putney County Fairgrounds for The Fiber Event, which runs through Friday and Saturday.
