Churro fleece is new to me. I was given a small sample of this fabulous fibre by Judith, one of my SpinningSchool ladies who had visited the Navajo reservation in the States earlier this year. I told my friend Gillian who lives in Phoenix, Arizona about it – she did a bit of research…as you do…and found Carol a lady who works tirelessly to get fair prices for the fleece and other products the Navajo Indians produce..she also came up with this magnificent photograph of a Churro sheep… This is Carol with one of the white ones
Am really inspired about the Churro fleece and can’t wait to get my hands on it! It comes in glorious colours including a Red Mesa which Carol tells me is a terracotta colour – there is also an Antique Grey, dark and light red Mesa and a dark chocolate brown. The trouble with applying words like ‘chocolate’ to fleece is that it becomes even more desirable and yummy – so I just have to have some….
