In Season: May to November
Wool is the textile fiber obtained from sheep and certain other animals, including cashmere from goats, mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids. Wool has several qualities that distinguish it from hair or fur: it is elastic, it is crimped and it grows in staples. Due to these qualities, wool fabrics have a greater bulk than other textiles and retain air, which causes the product to retain heat.
