Navajo-Churro sheep are great for 4H-ers. They are smaller than many other breeds, very hardy and disease-resistant. The ewes give birth easily, quickly claim their new babies, are protective of their young and are known for giving a lot of milk on marginal forage. As mothers they tend to twin and have strong herding instincts.
Navajo-Churro sheep are famous for their long, lustrous fleece which grows about an inch a month, in fabulous natural colors (See our gallery). Their wool is renown as a weaving wool but spun into two-ply it makes wonderful, sturdy socks and other knitted items. It also felts very easily.
Navajo-Churro meat is lean and flavorful, part of the SlowFood Ark of heritage foods.
Navajo-Churro sheep are listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as Rare.
