Staple Length: 6"       VM: Moderate        Crimp:  Dual Coat 

Weight:  4 oz. Package     Unusual Color: Jasper

Lil'Merci is a ewe with a unique coloration called Jasper which is black with white fibers. There is some VM in the inner coat.  Fo me to pull it out would destroy the lock structure.  It is shaking out easily, NOT FINE OR GROUND IN, should come out easily when processing.
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.
