Navajo-Churro are a heritage breed of sheep found primarily in the Southwest states, sheep whose ancestors traveled with the Spanish Conquistadores in the 1500s. Walking with these explorers exploring this 'New World,' the sheep provided them food and clothing and were welcomed at the missions and with Native Americans. Their rare wool remains popular with spinners and weavers.
