The Bannock Tribe often summered in Teton Valley. Chief Targhee was a leader of the Bannock Tribe. He met with the state government to secure the hunting and gathering rights of the Bannock people.
Targhee National Forest, Grand Targhee Ski Resort and the Targhee sheep are all named in honor of this chief who stood up for his people’s rights to preserve their way of life.
Acadia Fingering is spun of 19.5 micron Australian merino in Italian mills. This yarn is so soft you will be convinced it is blended with cashmere. This is a luxurious work horse yarn that is perfect for color work, garments, hats, gloves and wraps.

Dyeing: Teton Yarn Company uses color fast acid dyes on all our yarns. My yarns are all hand dyed by me in my yarn studio in Teton Valley, Idaho. Yarns are dyed in groups of 2-3 in most cases and I do my best to ensure consistency in each batch, however, there will be some variation even within a dye lot. Different dye lots will be siblings, rather than twins, so it is recommended you order enough for a project in one order for best results.
