Our Navajo Churro Sheep are pasture raised in Santa Cruz County, CA on our small family farm. Small amounts of vegetative matter are present. our yarn is professional processed in Mora, New Mexico.
Navajo Churro is the first sheep ever brought to North America. The Churro's wool is well suited to land with little water: the fleece is low in lanolin, and thus requires little washing or manipulation before it can be spun. Churro were important in the Navajo economy and flocks flourished until the Livestock Reduction Act was enacted in the 1930's to combat what the federal government claimed was severe overgrazing. More than 80 percent of the sheep were exterminated. Supporting the rebuilding of this heritage breed can be done through purchase of Churro yarns.
Our Churro yarn is great for weaving, knitting, crocheting, and many others projects using wool yarns.
Thank you for supporting our farm and helping rebuild this amazing breed of heritage sheep!
