Handspinning with the wool from Nistock Farms sheep, including our famed Cotswold Sheep, is pure joy!


Handspinning

Handspinning handspinners can select from our fleeces and wool, our wool roving, batting for felting & quilts and enjoy our custom drop spindle kits. All non Cotswold sheep are jacketed year round to provide the discriminating handspinner with beautiful fiber, free of vegetation and sunburning. The fleeces are then heavily skirted to ensure that all the fiber you receive will be of prime handspinning quality. All our natural and dyed roving is from our sheep flock and is offered directly to you for all your handspinning pleasures. Our Drop Spindle Kit is a fun and easy way to learn how to handspin yarn, it has everything you need to get started!

Cotswold Sheep

Cotswold sheep our unique in the curliness of their locks. Our flock consists of white and colored registered Cotswold sheep. In addition, we have colored and white crossbreeds of mostly Border Leicester and Corriedale lineage. All sheep have been selected for superior fleece (wool), mothering ability and structural correctness.

Doll Making (doll hair)

Doll making enthusiasts will love our the locks from our Cotswold sheep. They are ideal for doll hair (doll wigging) and Santa beards. Cotswold sheep offer curly locks which are highly desirable for use in doll making (as dell hair), Santa making (Santa beards) and other doll making projects.

Sheepskins
Our sheepskins are beautiful, soft, fluffy and machine washable. Sheepskins are available in a variety of colors.
