Tough and Tender


This fingering weight yarn is a soft yet durable blend of 90% SW Targhee, 10% Nylon. Perfect for socks, shawls or sweaters. Targhee is a breed of sheep developed in Idaho by crossing Corriedale, Lincoln, and Rambouillet sheep. The resulting fibre is soft, springy and durable, which translates into a wonderfully squishy yarn. The 3 ply nature of the yarn makes textures pop in your knitting or crocheting.

Skeins are available in the following sizes:

Petites: 1.25 oz/35 grams 136 yards/124 meters
Regular: 4 oz/115 grams 440 yards/402 meters

SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , ,


Care: Hand wash in cool water, mild detergent, lay flat to dry.

All of my yarns are hand dyed in a pet free, smoke free home and each batch is unique. Please make sure you purchase enough skeins to finish your project, as future batches of the same colourway may vary slightly. While all care is taken with the dyeing process, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch). We recommend that you alternate between skeins when working on larger projects.

All yarns are rinsed until the water runs clear and soaked in clean water before drying, but it’s always possible for any yarn (hand dyed or mass produced) to unexpectedly bleed colour later when washed, or “crock” (react with the user’s skin causing staining during use). If you are planning to mix this yarn with other colours in a project, I strongly recommend doing a test swatch first. If you experience major colour bleeding or other problems with any of my yarns, please let me know.

While all care has been taken to accurately represent the colour of the yarn, monitors do vary and the actual colour may be different than what you see on your screen.

I do my best to ensure there are no knots in the yarn, however some do slip past. Our standard is no more than two knots per skein, if you happen to find more than that, please let me know.

Please note, shipping costs are an estimate and any overages will be refunded.
