The first photo is two braids wound together; the next four photos are all of the same braid.
Targhee is one of the newest sheep breeds. Developed in Idaho, the Targhee breed comes from crosses of Rambouillet (highly crimped, very soft,) Corriedale (moderately crimped and moderately soft,) and Lincoln (long, lustrous curls.) This US grown wool is very soft - a fabulous 23 microns - with lots of muted luster. The bamboo and the silk add extra shine and drape.
