Wool is the stuff of history.
It’s woven into clothing and is used for textiles, textiles made from wool, textile yarns, textilks and other woven fabrics.
Wool is a key ingredient in modern life.
But is it really that good for you?
A new research paper from the University of Queensland looks at the impact of wool on men’s body image.
It looked at a survey of over 5,000 Australian men to see how they perceived themselves as men and how their attitudes changed over time.
The study found that those who thought of themselves as more masculine were more likely to feel good about themselves, and feel better about their body image than those who considered themselves more feminine.
Wool is a material that has a wide range of uses in our everyday lives, including clothing, textils and wool hats.
The Australian Wool Council says the majority of wool products are made from Australian cotton.
It also makes up about 50 per cent of Australia’s exports.
The authors say it’s not just about making woolier.
Wool can also improve the appearance of our skin.
