Squooshy. That is really the best way to describe Gerty, 100% American Targhee.  Amongst spinners and fleece people, Targhee seems to be the fiber of the moment.  In addition to softness, the fiber is noted for a 3 to 5 inch length and lands at 22 to 25 microns, with lots of crimp, this fiber takes color well. 

 

Targhee is a relatively new breed, developed in 1926 in Idaho, it is a cross-breed of Rambouillet rams and Corriedale and Lincoln/Rambouillet ewes, then back-crossed. The breeding was undertaken to get a sheep that produced both fiber and meat, and was suitable for ranching in the West and high plains.  As breed specific fiber becomes a greater focus among dyers and producers, we are re-discovering things that have been hiding in plain sight.  Hello Targhee!

Noted for soft and fluffy fiber, this merino-like fiber feels silky.
