We raise award winning Navajo-Churro Wool and offer a variety of products
Noted for the interesting variety of colors. Navajo-Churro fleece is double coated. About 2/3 is a finer inner coat and 1/3 is a coarser outer coat. The outer coat protects the sheep from elements and helps keep fleece clean. There may be a small amount of kemp fiber as well. An ideal fleece is very lustrous, does not have any defined crimp and is open with defined locks. The sheep fade in color with age, often becoming white or off white in the outer coat while retaining various amounts of color in inner coat making for many shades of brown, tan, gray white and silver. Relish in nature’s colors with our award winning selection of Navajo Churro wool and processed roving. Visit our store at to see what we have to offer https://sunshinenavajochurro.com/
Our fleece has a soft inner coat of (22-30 microns) with a robust outer coat (25-40 microns). This blend of fine and coarse fiber makes a strong durable yarn. Considered medium in coarseness the fiber is excellent for outer garments, rugs slippers, upholstery, horse cinches, saddle blankets, weavings and more. Small amounts of kemp fibers create rugged textures and excellent tweeds. The fleeces felt well for awesome hats, boots and more.
