High Castle Traditional Crafts

High Castle Traditional Crafts offers a wide variety of handwoven articles (including bags, wallets, purses, scarves, table runners, rag rugs, placemats, towels, pillows, and stuffed animals), hand knit items, contemporary, traditional, and historical knitting patterns and kits, knitting needles, hemp yarn, handspun yarn, spinning fiber, Cotswold sheep, and books on textiles and rural living.

The fleece I sell comes from my own Cotswold sheep and is available raw or washed in white, gray, black, and gray/black. I use no pesticides, insecticides, or other dips on my sheep. I wash their wool in mild detergent and remove vegetable matter by hand (instead of using chemicals as is commonly done in commercial wool production).

Cotswold sheep produce long-staple (6"-12") locks that are lustrous and gorgeous. They take dye very well. The long staples are ideal for spinning worsted yarn and make strong warp yarn for weaving. The curly wool makes superb doll hair and Santa beards.
