American Dream Worsted
New in 2015! American Dream Worsted is a 100% Targhee 3-ply yarn that is grown, processed, and spun entirely in the U.S. Each skein is 3.5 oz (100 g) and measures approximately 245 yards. Suggested needle size: US 6-7. Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
When you choose this yarn, you'll get a beautifully light, soft, and cozy yarn--and you'll support the domestic textile industry and reduce your carbon footprint. The US wool industry peaked in the 1940s, when it was the fifth-largest wool producer in the world. By the 2000s, it had fallen to less than 1% of the world's production. I'm hoping to do my small part in reversing that trend.
