Yarn > Traditional Wool The Chester family began breeding and development of the Targhee/Columbia Sheep in the late 1990's to produce a high-end, luxury fiber and after nearly ten years in development the traditional wool line was born. This fiber creates a yarn that blends together loft and softness. They say that copying someone's ideas is the greatest form of a compliment. As the originators of this beautiful blend we accept our competitor's compliments! We hope you enjoy the Traditional Collection!
