Jean Wernel provided the program, everything you wanted to know about wool. The history of wool goes back before 10,000 BC when wool cloth was spun by tribes in Northern Europe. No man made material has its quality. Wool is a global industry in the United Kingdom, Australia, Argentina, United States and New Zealand. The United States is the leading consumer and Australia the leading supplier. Felt is a product of wool and the first ever wool fabric.
