Introducing High Desert Heathered, a 50% Navajo Churro 50% Merino blended yarn..
High Desert Heathered combines black and white Navajo Churro, raised by Phil Singer, Jeanne Salt, and Lorena Noelson on the Navajo Nation, with single-flock Merino, raised by Elena Miller-terKuile of Cactus Hill Farms in Southern Colorado, resulting in a beautiful grey yarn. Their fibers bring the best of both breeds to this yarn--the loft and softness of Merino and the strength and luster of Navajo Churro, resulting in a hardy yet comfortable yarn perfect for knit, crochet, and weaving.
Produced by a small independent fiber mill, this yarn may have slight variations of thickness in the skein.:)
Items made with our fibers should be carefully hand washed and laid flat to dry.
