About Arriola Sunshine Farm Navajo- Churro Sheep
We have been breeding our sheep since 2004. Our entire flock is registered with Navajo-Churro Sheep Association. Our sheep and wool have one numerous awards. We work hard to conserve rare genetics and breed for a variety of lustrous colors. Our flock numbers 25-30 ewes, 40-50 lambs and a few rams. They are raised on lucious grass, fresh mountain air and Colorado sunshine. We will be happy to work with you to satisfy special needs.
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.
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, slippers, upholstery, horse cinches, saddle blanks and weavings and more. Small amounts of kemp create rugged textures and excellent tweeds. The fleeces felt well for awesome hats, boots and more.
