Set against the backdrop of the Moab Museum, this three-day event kicks off with a presentation on “Raising Navajo Churro Sheep and Wool Processing.” As attendees immerse themselves in Biakeddy’s tales of raising these unique sheep and supporting shepherds, they’ll gain insights into traditional wool processing methods. An interactive segment allows participants to touch and feel Navajo Churro wool at various stages of its transformation.
