Wool goes back to the Middle Ages

As we ring in Lunar New Year and the Year of the Sheep it is appropriately coincidental to have recently visited Chipping Campden where in the middle ages wool made the Cotswolds one of the wealthier parts of England.  Local lore argues the first wool capital of the world encircled the corner of Sheep & High St.

Reduced numbers of sheep notwithstanding, wool continues to be well understood though surprisingly only rumored as insulation.  This was interesting given the well publicized usage in British Parliament to the South and Edinburgh Castle to the North.   Ah well, tis only inspiration to make more noise to the West and across the pond!
