Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino

Nurtured is the result of an unusual collaboration between dyer Julie Asselin in Quebec and Green Mountain Spinnery in Vermont. Fine fleece from Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino breed sheep is dyed by Julie and her partner Jean-François in vibrant colours which are then shipped to the spinnery and blended to create a range of subtle shades. The blending process means that the same base shades are used in several colourways so they all combine well.

The yarn is woollen spun for a rustic texture and warm, lofty fabric. It's an Aran weight with 3 plies, which nestle together to make a rounded structure that gives dimensionality to textured stitches and cables.
