Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation - Peggy Hart

Wool Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation by Peggy Hart
Love learning about the history in the US about wool and why it's no longer used as much as back in the 1600's.
I am a knitter and do use patterns from 1860's for Sturbridge Village using the wool from their animals to knit the items they want. Love that this village is mentioned in the book. So fascinating to learn so much!
Sketches along the way showing what is being talked about. It's much of how I picture the early 1900's with the local mills (I live in RI so am familiar).
Loved hearing of the resources that still produce wool yarn today.

Received this review copy from the author via Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.
