Item details

This listing 4 oz of range grown Navajo churro wool in a warm brown with a toucj of gray heathering ("jaspered brown"). It is an exceptionally strong wool, long stapled with a mixture of inner fine fibers and outer coarser fibers, staple length ranging from 3 to 7 inches. This wool felts easily, spins easily as a low twist single on a Navajo spindle, wheel, or kick spindle. It will create a product with long-wearing capabilities.

This breed was almost lost due to lack of understanding by the US government of its utility and essential role in the life of the Dineh people. Its revival is an important occurrence. Think external wear, bags, and rugs. The natural colors range from white to a range of grays, browns, and black. It also dyes well.

All of our animal based yarn and spinning fiber is a US small farm product, purchased at fair rates from the person who raised the animal in humane conditions and processed with a low carbon footprint. We do not use thermal or chemical processes to remove vegetable matter, so you may find the occasional trace of hay fleck, but it will not diminish your spinning pleasure. There is a little more in our churro than our fine wool roving, but that is due to the fact that these sheep live on the range. Even if the sheep could be jacketed safely, it would probably felt the fleece. It is shipped in boxes, not poly mailers, to prevent excessive compression and abrasion. It should arrive ready to spin without further prep.
