"Old Type" Navajo Wool
Back in the early 1970's one man saw a dying breed and with it a culture and people. He saw a need that few saw and hence the Navajo Sheep Project a.k.a NSP was formed. Since that time the Navajo Sheep Project, a nonprofit organization, has not only been saving a rare breed, the Navajo Churro, but also a part of history, a culture, a people, and a way of life.
I was lucky enough to find old (new) stock of the "Old Type" Navajo wool at a Trading Post in Arizona. This beautiful, clean, long haired fiber is the perfect wool for spinning - especially for beginners!
