Description

This intriguing new book tells the story of one of the world’s first fibers, shorn from sheep, carded into wool, and spun into cloth since as early as 1500 B.C. Young readers will also learn about the introduction of mass manufactured clothing during the Industrial Revolution and how wool and textile are produced today.
