Jet is the perfect name for this little lamb and this is Jet's  hogget fleece.  Hogget is the first shearing of a lamb.  It is very soft and extremely black, a gorgeous example of Navajo-Churro.
Navajo-Churro is a dual-coated sheep that gives a long outer coat that averages 25-40 microns and a soft inner coat with an average micron of 22-30.   Spun together they make a strong durable yarn. Considered medium in coarseness the fiber is excellent for outer garments, slippers, upholstery, horse cinches, saddle blanks, and weavings, and more.
This breed is noted for the interesting variety of colors.  See our other listings for more choices.
This is a Raw, un-washed fleece ready for you to scour.  I scoured a sample with Unicorn Power Scour and it cleaned up great.  The wool spins easily and is a pleasure to work with.
