Have you ever gone to an art gallery, colonial village or Civil War re-enactment and wondered what it would be like to wear period clothing? Most of the clothing you will see on this website, I produced using period
methods and materials available at the time, including cotton, wool, hemp, silk, linen, and combinations of linen/wool, wool/cotton and linen/cotton. Many of my handmade products are available for sale.
Period Wool: I am interested in period wool and I now spin wool from my small heritage sheep flock for knitting and weaving. I have one Tunis Sheep that were first introduced in 1790 to Pennsylvania from Tunisia. Tunis sheep wool is noted for its length and 56 to 58 spinning count wool. I also own a Cotswold Sheep that would have been used for wool production in the late 1600s. The Cotswold wool is fine in texture and about 8 to 10 inches long.
My fascination with living history started when I walked the woods around my neighborhood in Virginia, the main battle ground of the Civil War. Since then, I have participated in living history, creating gowns and clothing that would have been popular during the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the 1840s and the Civil War.
