THE LONG AND SHORT OF CHURRO WOOL with Glenna Dean / November 4, 2012
Come learn the basics of preparing and spinning our local beloved sheep breed- the Navajo-Churro. This class will teach the differences between the outer and inner coats and how you work with them. You will explore how with wool combing and yarn construction you can make Churro yarns that shine or how by combining the course outer coat and fine inner coat you can make a fiber that spins like wire and wears like iron. This is a great class for learning an important part of New Mexico fiber history.
