We searched far and wide to find you the next Ashland Bay yarn! And where did we end up? Practically in our own backyard! Our new Targhee yarns are 100% domestically raised and spun; 100% products of USA.These products qualify under NAFTA which allows them to be shipped to Canada duty free.
We are very excited to be able to offer you these two new exceptionally wonderful yarns. Not only is the yarn domestically raised and spun, but the breed itself was developed in the US at the Experimental Sheep Station in Dubois, Idaho in the mid 1900’s.
