Katherine Tucker is the generous, talented force behind Desert Churros Roving Ranch in Acton, CA.

In her own words, “My love of the Navajo Churro sheep and their wool is an evolving story. I started out working my herding dogs - Australian shepherds, with different sheep, and then progressed to raising Navajo Churro sheep for their wool. I liked the idea of preserving this wonderful breed of sheep. I love caring for the churros and breeding for excellent wool quality. I have my wool carefully processed and I enjoy learning about how these fibers can be used - from rugs to blankets. I have two looms and am learning about weaving rugs and other projects suitable for this wool. Along the way, I am meeting amazingly talented weavers and spinners who are very generous with their time and knowledge.
