WOOL- THE WORLDS COMFORTER. A SURVEY OF THE WOOL INDUSTRY FROM THE RAW MATERIAL TO THE FINISHED PRODUCT, INCLUDING DESCRIPTIONS OF MANUFACTURING AND MARKETING METHODS AND A DICTIONARY OF WOOL FABRICS. Introduction: It is safe to say that, while wool is the oldest of all our textiles, the public knows less about it than about silk, cotton or linen. That all may know the properties and kinds and types of woolens this book is one of the most complete brief treatises on wool ever attempted. We doubt if any volume of its size gives in condensed form so much vital information about the oldest of our materials. Originally published in 1922. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
