i just won 2 pounds of Raw Targhee on ebay
during my search to make sure i was getting a good price i saw that this was supposed to be a very nice soft wool.. but i've never felt it before so i have no idea!
anyone used this kind of wool before? what's it like?

easy to spin, soft enough to wear next to skin.
I'd spin it again myself....

A quick reference for various sheep breeds can be found at
I recommend you get the book: "In Sheep's Clothing: A Handspinner's Guide to Wool" by Nola & Jan Fournier.
Have you worked with raw fleece before?

thanks for the book rec.
i actually got it today and have a little bit soaking right now if it works out well i'll be doing more tonight and probably posting about it over in the washing fleece thread
i haven't worked with raw fleece before but i have more coming already!
a couple pounds of a lincolin-finn cross and some raw alpaca
i also got a business card from someone to possibly get some mixed color llama fleece
so i'll be learning pretty quickly!
