Slate is made from 100% Navajo-Churro wool in natural grey. Navajo-Churro sheep are a dual coated breed with a long, hairy outer coat and shorter, downy under coat. Slate blends both coats together into a single-ply yarn. We refer to this style of yarn as “lopi style” because it is the same technique used to make Icelandic lopi yarn from dual-coated Icelandic sheep.
Rugged and fuzzy. Best suited for weaving and outerwear.
