Mountain Niche Farm
(Chehalis,WA)We raise Navajo-Churro sheep and their crosses for fiber and meat. Navajo Churro are a narrow body, lean sheep with lower grease content than other breeds. Our sheep are raised on pasture, hay and alfalfa pellets, with grain for moms with lambs. Our primary market is wool for weaving yarns or handspinning fleeces and meat is our secondary product. Our main breeding flock is registered or registerable and we strive to increase our quality of fiber within the breed standards. We have approximately 15 acres of lush grass surrounded by a creek and further acreage of growing timber. Our farm is a peaceful environment for sheep to grow! Farm visits are welcome by appointment. We also offer a small number of animals for sale for breeding stock each year. Also fiber pets of the Blue-Faced Leicester X Gotland persuasion produce silky, shiny fleece that dyes with shimmer. We also create knitting yarns with our wool and the wool of another local farm. The yarns are hand dyed using fiber reactive acid dyes for wool. I am also exploring the use of more environmentally friendly acid dyes. The knitting yarns are either Shetland/alpaca blend, Romney or Navajo-Churro in several weights. Call or email for the current availability. We also show the yarns at the Olympia Weaver's Guild Sale. Other wool products include raw fleeces, processed roving ready to spin or felt, denser yarns for weaving and pelts. Churro wool makes a lovely structural felt and comes in many colors.
