wool, wool fiber, wool garments
Wool has long been prized for its many excellent qualities, especially by people who live where cold weather necessitates the wearing of warm clothing. Not only do wool fabrics afford warmth, but they are durable, and attractive in appearance as well. However, no matter how attractive a fabric may be, a certain amount of upkeep is essential if the garment is to maintain its original good appearance. This can best be accomplished if the fiber characteristics are known and understood and this knowledge applied along with the common practices of pressing, storing, and general care, usually given to wearing apparel.
