Announcement   Hello Everyone,
2018 is an exciting year for Desert Churros Rovings. In May, Textile Arts Los Angeles visited the ranch. What a fun and talented group of fiber artists. I gave them a presentation on natural dyes from high desert plants and they visited with the sheep.
In May, I transferred one of my rams to Two Gray Hills Weaver, Irene Bennalley. It was a journey to transport the ram to the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. My sister and her husband Jim were my road buddies. Irene lives near the Toadlena Trading Post in Newcombe, NM. Her Navajo Churros are beautiful and my ram Spirit will make a good addition to her herd! I feel fortunate to have made Irene's acquaintance. if you want to visit Irene and / or take tapestry weaving from her, you can contact her at 505-793-8038.

About

I love the Navajo Churro breed of Sheep and their wool

My love of the Navajo Churro sheep and their wool is an evolving story. I started out working my herding dogs - Australian shepherds, with different sheep, I then progressed to getting interested in raising Navajo Churro sheep for their wool. I liked the idea of preserving this wonderful breed of sheep. I love caring for the churros and breeding for excellent wool quality. I have my wool carefully processed and I enjoy learning about how these fibers can be used - from rugs to blankets. I have two looms and am learning about weaving rugs and other projects suitable for this wool. Along the way, I am meeting amazingly talented weavers and spinners who are very generous with their time and knowledge.
