Have a look at Le Prevo leathers on the web.
I was on their web site looking for something else & got diverted to look at the horse tail hair bundles - sold for rocking horse tails!

Re: Medieval Paints

In case its of interest..................
There was an ochre paint manufacturer at Parys Mountain on Anglesey in Victorian times.
The relevance of this is that the ochre pits are still open to public access.............if you get my drift.

Re: Corn Dollies

I would suggest that the dollies as we now know them - woven wheat - are very much Victorian. However, the concept of corn sheaves being decorated at harvest end is reputed to go back to Egyptians.
