I like wool
When I was a kid, I had a paper route. In the winter it was cold, blowing wind, snow............nasty.
I had this nice old lady on my route who would drag me in and feed me hot choc. and cake dern near every day. She thought I was going to freeze to death so she gave me one of her husbands (dead husband) wool over coat, from the 20-30s.
No way I was going to wear that thing. But she was a nice lady, I didn't want to hurt her feelings so figured I'd wear it a ways, then when out of sight dump it.
But the time I got out of sight of the house, I was toasty warm. Screw dumping the coat. I wore it all winter, every winter until I out grew it.
Every since, if its cold, I want wool.
