Weaving in Beauty Navajo-Churro yarn is custom spun to our specifications.  The wool is locally sourced in the Four Corners area, scoured in Ohio, and spun in Pennsylvania.  It retains a small amount of vegetal matter and has some size variations.  As a result, it tends to look like handspun wool.  If you don’t tell, we won’t tell.  We dye the skeins here in our store so that we have ultimate control over the colors and we’re able to offer a wider palette.  It also saves a trip to the dye house.  This wool already has a lot of miles on it by the time it gets here.  It is available in Size 1, approximately 210 yards per skein, and Size 2, approximately 325 yards per skein.  A skein will cover about a square foot of weaving area.  

Inside Weaving in Beauty Navajo-Churro: the  Good, the Bad, and the Annoying 

Good: The yarn is softer than you think.  It takes dye very well and it is also good for felting.  

Bad:  If you need multiple skeins for an upcoming project, please contact us to let us know what you’re looking for we may have to dye it for you.  Remember, this is hand-dyed yarn so it takes a while to do a good job.  There is usually some variation in the colors of the wool because the yarn is kettle-dyed.  If you need really even color, let us know and we’ll do our best to get that result for you.  

Annoying: Some people find the thick and thin areas difficult to work with.  Navajo-churro is a long wool and many mills will not touch it.  Our mill does a generally good job and they keep the thickness variations to a minimum, but if an even yarn is important to you, look at the Burnham’s Trading Post or Brown Sheep Yarns.
