Wool…

Wool is from ancient times the material for which knitting was preferred, first of all when it came to knitwear. This has not changed much to date, although the choice of synthetic yarns for handicrafts that play a major role in the modern era is great. Nevertheless, the wool did not lose its place in the area of manual labor. As a true gift of nature, the wool remains in the forefront with its extraordinary qualities and so far its prestige is not jeopardized by the development of modern technique.Wool can rightly be compared to natural fur, it is not just a heat, it gives heat. It reacts by itself to the percentage of moisture in the air, it is bound by the complicated chemical process and at the same time it develops heat. Wool equals temperature, adapts to the environment as well as to body requirements. Therefore, in woolen clothes, we feel comfortable at the greatest cold and hot heat.Sometimes women are pre-wool-eared with sheep, and they are preparing knitwear for knitting socks and sweaters for long winter days and nights.

  1. Unfortunately I cannot wear wool or even synthetic wool because I inevitably start itching like crazy. But I agree with you that wool is irreplaceable in today’s culture. I love to knit and crochet with it but always for somebody else… My maternal grandmother used to spin her own wool with her good old spinning wheel. I wish that wheel would still be around, because I am sure I would have been able to spin from my three dogs fur shedding, a fair amount of dog wool…to knit or crochet with. I see from the picture that the women spin with a spindle only, which must be slightly hard on the fingers but it was the practice long before the spinning wheel. Great article…
