High Desert 2 Roving: 60/40 Merino/Navajo Churro blend from Indigenous and Rural Shepherds - NEW
Introducing High Desert 2, a 60%Merino/40% Navajo Churro blended roving.
4oz. The mill gave us a mixed lot so some is thicker roving, some is thinner. They are the same blend.
High Desert 2 combines single-flock Navajo Churro, raised by Jay Begay on the Navajo Nation, with single-flock Merino, raised by Elena Miller-terKuile of Cactus Hill Farms in Southern Colorado. Their fibers bring the best of both breeds to this roving--the loft and softness of Merino and the strength and luster of Navajo Churro, resulting in a hardy yet comfortable blend perfect for knit, crochet, and weaving. High Desert 2 is softer than the original High Desert, while maintaining the rustic feel of small flock roving.
Produced by a small independent fiber mill, this roving may have small bits of vm here and there from the happy, free range sheep.:)
NEW COLORS!!!!! High Desert 2 is available in brand new colors for 2021, as well as the original High Desert colors.
High Desert 2 Worsted comes in a variety of hand dyed shades, dyed by Andrea Greene. All High Desert 2 products are grown, milled, and dyed in the high deserts of the Four Corners Region.
Items made with our fibers should be carefully hand washed and laid flat to dry.
