Forbes Ranch lies near Kaycee, Wyoming in the eastern valleys of the Bighorn Mountains. The Forbes family has lived here for three generations, herding their Rambouillet sheep from lowland winter pastures up into the mountains each year.The Forbes family takes pride in raising healthy sheep with exceptional wool, while sustainably managing their pastureland. Raised in Wyoming, wool from the Forbes Rambouillet flocks traveled to Crescent Woolen Mills in Two Rivers, Wisconsin to be woolen-spun and plied into a worsted-weight yarn with plenty of springy, lightweight softness. After spinning, Ranch 02: Forbes journeyed to Caledonian Dye Works in Philadelphia to be dyed in a warm, earthy palette inspired by the rugged landscape of Wyoming’s ranchland. Ranch 02: Forbes is a testament to connection: connection between the land, the sheep, the ranchers, and the artisans who shepherd the fiber along its supply chain.
