Wool is possibly the oldest fiber known to humans. It was one of the first
fibers to be spun into yarn and woven into fabric. Wool is mostly comes
from sheep but also from alpacas, camels, and goats. Australia, Eastern
Europe, New Zealand, and China are major wool producers. The American
woolen industry began in the Massachusetts settlements in 1630, where each
household was required by law to produce wool cloth.

Finding the pelts not only warm and comfortable but also durable, they soon
began to develop the basic processes and primitive tools for making wool.
By 4000 B.C. , Babylonians were wearing clothing of crudely woven fabric.

People soon began to develop and maintain herds of wool-bearing animals.
The wool of sheep was soon recognized as one of the most practical to use.
During the eleventh and twelfth centuries, wool trade prospered. The
English had become proficient in the raising of sheep, while the Flemish
had developed the skills for processing. As a result, the British began to
sell their wool to the Flemish, who processed the raw material and then
sold it back to the English.

The ambitious British soon realized the advantages of both producing and
processing their own wool. As Britain began to prosper, it sought to
enhance its position by enacting laws and embargoes that would stimulate
its domestic production. Some laws, for example, required that judges,
professors, and students wear robes made of English wool. Another law
required that the dead be buried in native wool. When the American colonies
began to compete with the motherland, the English passed a series of laws
in an attempt to protect their "golden fleece." One law even threatened the
