Rural + Indigenous Handspun Merino/Navajo Churro Yarn-New!
Spun by hand on the Navajo Nation or in Rural New Mexico as part of our Rural + Indigenous handspinner project, these single ply yarns are spun from our High Desert 2 Roving.
Our Indigenous Spinners:
Phil Singer (Navajo Nation, Arizona)
Dorothy Singer (Navajo Nation, Arizona)
Nikyle Begay (Navajo Nation, Arizona)
Jay Begay (Navajo Nation, Arizona)
Our Rural Spinners:
Brooke Lyons, (Rural New Mexico)
All of our handspun yarns are dyed using professionally custom-blended acid dyes. The wool is dyed prior to spinning, resulting in a beautiful and subtle variegation in the yarn. These dyes are light and wash-fast, though some bleeding may be experienced with the first soaking.
Care: products made with this yarn should be hand washed in cool water, using a wool wash if desired, without agitation. Lay flat to dry.
