This is the carded inner coat of the Navajo Churro, a 1-3 inch fiber. Navajo Churro typically has a low micron inner coat, so soft it was separated from the outer coat by hand and used for a special dress. Please visit http://navajo-churrosheep.com to learn more about the breed, and to learn more about the history and culture of the Navajo and their sheep, please read http://navajolifeway.org/a-short-history-on-navajo-churro-sheep/
This carded fiber is white/light offwhite with the occasional dark fiber. Use for felting or as a soft cloud of core wool, blend with another fiber and take advatage of this wool's softness, or try your hand at spinning it as is. Can be used like a roving or batt. Limited stock.
Roving is carded fiber shaped into a long cylinder. The fibers crisscross each other. It is best suited to woolen preparations. Combed top is further processed by combing, removing much of the remaining nepps and debris, and making the fibers parallel. Top is best suited to worsted or semi-worsted preparations.
Micron indicates the fineness of the fiber. Below 24 micron is considered fine. Merino and Rambouillet are finewools. The smaller the micron, the finer the wool. Conversely, spinning count indicates finer fiber with higher numbers. This is because it is based on the number of hanks of yarn that can be spun from a pound of wool.
