Handwoven Churro Scarf - One Of A Kind, Ready To Wear
This scarf is woven with a heritage breed of sheep known as the Navajo-Churro, which was on the brink of extinction in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Breeding programs have kept these bloodlines alive, and this yarn is produced in a family-owned and operated ranch located in Los Ojos, NM. It is also spun and hand-dyed with natural, low-impact dyes in the USA. Churro yarn is very warm and insulating, but if you have any sensitivities to wool, I would not recommend this scarf for next to skin wear. It is a very rustic, sturdy fiber that will wear well, but there is a fair amount of natural kemp that gives it a bit of a "prickle" factor. Please note, other items shown in the modeled shot are NOT included for sale in this listing. I have done my best to accurately represent the colors in this piece, but know that some monitors will display colors differently (fun fact: smart phones and tablets tend to display the truest colors). Item is one-of-a-kind and ready to ship as-is. This handwoven scarf uses 6 colors of natural and hand-dyed Churro yarn to produce a plaid-like effect. Size: 73 inches long (excluding fringe) x 8.25 inches wide Care instructions: hand wash in tepid water with a no-rinse detergent such as Allure Fiber Wash or Eucalan Delicate Wash. Lay flat to dry away from sunlight. FREE shipping to US addresses!
