Climate Beneficial Fiber (In Progress)

Humanely harvested and locally processed wool derived from Navajo Churro sheep managed through practices verified to enhance water, soil, and climate.

In partnership with our regional fibershed, Mountains & Plains Fibershed, and our local Natural Resource Conservation Service office, a carbon plan is currently being drawn up for our farm, carbon farming practices, which can be measured and monitored for the enhancement of permanent soil carbon storage, are being implemented on the farm, and therefore material coming from our farm can be verified as Climate Beneficial™.

Raw navajo-churro fleece

The wool is classified as coarse and is composed of three distinct types of fiber:
Inner coat: Wool fibers range from 10- 35 microns, comprising 80% of the entire fleece, measuring 3 - 5 inches in length.
Outer coat: Hair fibers measuring 35+ microns, comprising 10- 20% of the entire fleece, measuring 6 to 12 inches.
Kemp: Short opaque fibers of 65+ microns not to exceed 5% of the fleece.
The fleece has no defined crimp. 

Unwashed, lightly skirted, raw fleece. A variety of colors. Ideal for hand spinners as there is vegetable matter in the wool.
