Thunder is a ewe with an interesting color of dark brown with Red fiber. This should create a tweedy yarn when spun together.  The color combination is striking.  This is one fleece I wanted to add to my own stash. 
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 blankets, 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.
