Cotswold Combed Top

Combed Top

We select only lamb’s wool for our combed top. The fleece is sheared when the lamb reaches one year of age, thus providing an ample staple length of 8 to 10 inches. This rare, premium product comes in a beautiful creamy white. Cotswold wool is delightfully lustrous and takes dyes nicely, resulting in rich, pure colors. Combed top is used to spin a worsted yarn that gives woven or knitted garments a beautiful drape, minimal pilling, and great durability. Lamb’s wool has the added advantage of being softer and finer than the fiber from an adult.

Cotswold White Roving

Roving

Wool from our adult sheep, sheared every six to eights months, is sent to the mill to be washed, carded and made into roving. Roving differs from combed top in that carding will open the fleece and lightly align the fibers. Combed top is processed further by combing, which results in all the fibers lying parallel. Roving is used for spinning, felting, and crafting. We have white and gray.  Roving is best suited for spinning a woolen yarn. Woolen yarns have a soft handle and are warm.

Cotswold Washed Locks

Washed Locks

Only the choice wool from the top of the sheep’s back is selected for washed locks. This wool best demonstrates the unique characteristics of Cotswold wool. The soft waves and wonderful luster resemble human hair. Washed locks are sought by doll makers, who use it in the natural soft white color or dye it to suit their needs.
