Meet: Modus Operandi Fibers Targhee Worsted
Make: Postscript

Targhee Worsted, from Modus Operandi, is a squishy, bouncy non-superwash worsted weight yarn made with wool raised and spun in the USA. Targhee wool is known as a fine wool that rivals merino for softness, and takes natural color beautifully, which MO Fibers' RIn knows all too well!

And looky looky at this coincidence! Jennifer L Parroccini released a spectacular pattern recently that really makes the most of it! 

Postscript is a sweater you can come home to. It’s a classic framework - a shawl neck cardigan, rich texture, set-in sleeves. And the pattern reflects the standards we’ve come to expect from a knitting pattern: thoughtful sizing for a dozen sizes, optional bust darts in five cup sizes, and gentle hip shaping.

There are subtle things that make it feel elegant and abundant, but it wears like a favorite hoodie. It stays on your shoulders, it closes smoothly at your hips, it falls evenly from your bust. The buttons are oversized, so they make a statement, but not one that competes.

You can shop MO Fibers Targhee Worsted right HERE.

We hope you love this sweater as much as we do!
