Targhee combed top: Reinette, 4 oz
Reinette is part of my apple colorway series, a fresh and lively combination of spring green, buttery yellow, rich reddish purple, soft raspberry, and charcoal. It's also a nod to one of my favorite episodes of Doctor Who, "The Girl in the Fireplace," which features the real-life Madame du Pompadour, whose nickname was Reinette, or Little Queen.
It's dyed on Targhee combed top, 100% grown and processed in the USA. Targhee is a sheep breed developed in Idaho in the mid 20th century, beloved by spinners for its softness (23-23.5 microns), medium staple length, and bounce. A pleasure to spin and a delight to knit and wear.
Each braid is 4 oz. Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry.
