Product Description

*** All available roving is currently spoken for. Let us know if you are interested in the next available batch! ***

Good Lord, this roving is gorgeous.

Mocha with gray undertones and lustrous, this roving will make beautiful yarn or crafts. Both coats are combined, so you'll feel a little of the coarse outer layer.

I seriously have to remind myself I can't keep it.

Bonita is getting lighter, so don't miss this color!

Navajo-Churros are the first breed of sheep to arrive in the United States via Spanish conquistadors, where they served as a meat source for explorers and missionaries, as well as a fiber source for weavers. Along the way, they also became useful to the Navajo people. They were a major factor in both personal use and trade in Hispanic and Native American economies.
In the 1860s, as part of the government's attempt to gain control of the Navajo people, the majority of Navajo-Churros were destroyed.
Between the 1930s and the 1970s when conservation efforts began, the last remaining Navajo-Churros were sparsely scattered among the canyons of the southwest.

This probably shows the color best Bonita
