Navajo-Churro Wool Show & Clinic

Navajo-Churro Sheep Wool Show & Clinic General Information

Show Time is Friday, June 22nd 2013 – 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

This year we are using a different approach to the Navajo Churro Wool show. Rather than competing against each other, we will be learning with each other. Everyone will be a winner because each will be gaining valuable insights as a producer and breeder of Navajo-Churro Sheep. First, you will be asked to tell us what you like about your wool fleece and what you are concerned about as a wool producer or fiber artist. Then the judge(s) will provide you with their opinion(s) from these perspectives:

  1. How well your fleece compares to the Navajo Churro Sheep Association breed standard

  2. The quality of your fleece from a Navajo fiber artist perspective

  3. Comments about other characteristics of the wool and its potential uses
