Wool is amazing. Wool is:
Breathable – able to transport moisture in a vapor state from one place to another. Wool clothing wicks moisture away from your skin, making you drier and more comfortable.
Odor Resistant – the moisture wicking properties minimize the growth and life of odor-causing bacteria.
Warming and Cooling – air that is caught in the wool crimp is a natural insulator and can help keep you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Strong and Resilient – it can be stretched, bent, twisted and tugged in any direction literally thousands of times without damage.
Naturally fire resistant – which is one the reasons why so many military uniforms are made from wool.
Natural and sustainable – wool is a natural product, produced by sheep and available for harvesting (shearing) every year without damage to the sheep.
Wool marketing can be broadly classified into two methods: commodity and direct (or niche).
The Gwinnett County Fair takes place each September. It draws thousands of people from the metro area. Two highlights of the fair are the Open Class Sheep Show and the Wool Show.
