Most of what we carry is personally hand-made, custom made for today and the 18th Century Living History re-enacting. Our hand knit items (all knit by Karen!) contain Bartlett 100% wool yarn or Hand-spun yarn can be ordered. All our yarn is preshrunk before creating our knitted items, so yes they are washable! Just don't put them in the Dryer!! Karen has developed her own patterns from pictures of original articles. She tries to keep them as period accurate as she can. Karen has also created more modern day items to keep your hands and fingers warm.
