My sheep and I live, work and thrive in the sky island region of southeastern Arizona.
Navajo Churro sheep wool grows in many natural shades ranging from bright whites, greys, browns to jet blacks. On an individual sheep it is not uncommon to have varying shades of colors. At shearing time I sort the fleeces into 5 predominant colors---hence the varigated and heathered appearance of the yarns.
You will make your individual color selection at the time of purchase.
Each skein contains 188 yards weighing approximately 4 ounces. It is a single ply yarn.
Small amounts of vegetative matter are present. Yarn is professionally processed for me in Mora, New Mexico.
My yarns can be used successfully in weaving, knitting, crocheting as well as other projects where wool yarn is called for.
Please email me for the availability of more skeins if you are needing more than are listed.
Beautiful yarns, quick to ship. So happy to find this great source for Churro!

This is rough spun and varies in thickness. I'm using it for tapestry weaving. I like the color and the texture it contributes. I've never used Churro wool before so didn't know what to expect.

Dyeing it and weaving with it. It's so beautiful!

I will definitely work with this seller again! Very prompt shipping, and the seller was kind enough to group my purchases into a less expensive package deal of one skein of each color, even though I ordered them individually. The yarn itself is gorgeous, beautiful true colors, and nicely spun. There is some VM, but easily removed by taking the skeins out and shaking them in the sunshine. I plan to use in weaving Navajo rugs.

As with gray, a quick hot bath did a world of good to this yarn. Lovely to the touch. Thank you!
