Is wool warm?
Yes, iit can be warm.
Any type of certain fiber, such as cotton or flax, prepared after a special process. Also, a sheep/lamb/goat's hair. . I would say that the word "wool" refers to fiber made from sheep's fleece (or hair). Other animals fur can be used to make yarns, but then they most often would be referred to i…n different words. For example: . mohair is from the angora goat . alpaca is from the alpaca . angora is from a rabbit . cashmere is from the cashmere goat . givuit comes from the artic musk ox . camel is from a camel In addition to yarns made from animal hair/fiber/pelts/fleeces, there are Vegetable fibers: cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo, to name a few. There would also be manmade yarns, such as: acrylic, nylon, polyester, and spandex. Yarns that wouldn't easily be categorized in the above manner, would include silk, and a newly manufactured yarn made from soybeans (soy milk), and milk! Yes, I said milk--the best description of the process is like when you make cotton candy, when you put the cone into the spinning cotton candy and roll it around to get the candy on the cone.

Wool is less combustible (less easily burnt) than cotton and synthetic materials. . Wool tends to return to its original shape when it has been stretched or folded better than cotton and synthetics do. . Wool is more resistent to tearing. . Wool absorbs 30% of its weight when it is wet, doing do …without feeling damp to the touch. . Wool, like cotton, is a natural fibre, and thus less processing goes into making it usable. Aside from all that, its original and most natural advantage is that it keeps sheep warm and insulated against the elements. ( Full Answer )
You could get wool by shearing a sheep. Wool is like the hair of a sheep.
No, wool is the hair cut from sheep. It is a polymer made up of several elements.
Wool is the hair that grows on the bodies of sheep (also called a fleece) - The fleece is cut (without harming the sheep) from the sheep, combed and spun into a yarn which is called wool. The yarn can be made up into woolen garments. The woolly appearance of the fleece also gives the name wool to …other items such as rock wool, wire wool, cotton wool etc. ( Full Answer )
The wool keeps the sheep's body heat in so it keeps warm that's why framers sheer sheep in summer.
Ragg wool is a sturdy wool fiber that is most often spun into yarn that is used for gloves and other "rugged" products.
Synthetic wool is a man-made fibre that purports to mimic the qualities of natural wool.
Wool is an okay insulator, but the lanolin in the wool is the stuff that really keeps the sheep warm. It wicks away melted snow and is a better heat conductor, so it warms up the fleece using body heat.
YES WOOL KEEPS YOU VERY WARM BUT IT ALSO STINKS IF YOU GET IT WET AND FEELS SCRATCHY AND IS VERY HEAVY
Wool fibers are hollow, which draws moisture away from your body like a polar bears fur.
Wool is called fleece when it starts. You shear it off of a lamb or sheep. This is done once or twice a year, depending on the type of sheep and where they live. Shearing is just a short hair cut for the sheep, and if it is done correctly, it doesn't harm the sheep at all. After the fleece is cut o…ff the sheep, it is washed, dried, combed out (carded), then spun into wool yarn or thread. White wool can be dyed to get many different colors. This can all be done by machines or by hand. ( Full Answer )
wear more thick clothing, drink warm drinks or eat hot food. wear more thick clothing, drink warm drinks or eat hot food
The wool contains lanolin that helps wick away moisture such as rain drops and snow. The wool is thick and able to act as an insulation to the animal.
Wool is a bad conductor of heat so when we wear a woolen clothit does not allow the heat of our body to go out and it keep uswarm.
No. Wool clothing keeps you warm because it has air trapped between its fibers, which acts as insulation to keep your body heat from escaping.
Answer . Wool only comes from lamb. However, if they make the wool in to thread or in some other form you may not be allergic to store wool and just the lamb's wool.. Answer . Yes, lambs carry other nutrients and things on their skin. But these are combed out of the wool as it is being processed …and made into fabric. Answer If you are allergic to a substance it means that you are producing an immune response to that substance. To produce an immune responce your body must be sensitized and be able to "recognise" the particular substance which is acting as an allergen. As sheep and lambs are the same creature at different stages of their life cycle there should be no difference in the chemical composition of the wool or lubricating secreations present. Problems may arise however in the chemicals used to treat lambs wool and sheep wool before it is made into a garment. So no, it is not possible to have an allergy to lambs and not sheeps wool but it is possible that they are treated with different chemicals and you may be allergic to one of these. If however the "wool" you are refering to is from a different species such as a llama, you may be allergic to lambs wool but not llama wool. ( Full Answer )
Yes wool does keep you warm. Just look it uP on google and it will say yes =]
If it is cold water, than it is cold. if it is warm water, it is normal
yes, it does. is that really what you are asking or is there a different meaning to that question?
u can make so many thing out of wool here are some u can make juper,scarf,t'sharts,pants.ect!
The word has origins in so many languages that I feel more comfortable providing the Online Etymology Dictionary link, listed below:
The standard answer will be the space between the wool fibers traps air and insulates, thus keeping you warm. Also, the wool fibers are non-absorbent, so it won't absorb your sweat and become clammy and cold. However, there is a strange property of wool that makes it just warmer than high quality sy…nthetic base-layer (underwear), even though the synthetics have all of the above properties. I personally think it is the scratchiness of the wool that makes the difference. I don't care how soft or how high the quality of your wool underwear is, it just feel different to the skin. I would say it is not smooth and not as comfortable, but the unique sensory input makes me feel warmer compare to a synthetic shirt with identical thickness. I can't explain it, but it is true. I heard old school climbers would wear those scratchy clothing just for that warmth benefit. ( Full Answer )
You can recycle it by breaking down the fibres and turing it into something else. An old jumper, for instance, may be carefully undone and the wool gathered, cleaned, and re-used. Another term for wool that is re-used is "shoddy".
In its natural state on the sheep or after shearing but before any cleaning, it is very waterproof because of the lanolin (a waxy substance produced by the sheep's sebaceous glands) it contains. After the lanolin is removed, either by lengthy washing or industiral processes, the wool will absorb wat…er quite readily; it can take on fully one-third of its own weight in water. ( Full Answer )
Yes, wool is an object, since an object is a material thing that can be seen and touched.
they keep the sheep warm and they cut it and turn it into coat jersy but different colour
The wool prevents 'the thing' from losing heat, i.e. it won't make a cold stone warm.
Type of wool depends on the measurement of the wool's diameter in microns and also its style. . microns . Carpet wools: 35-45 microns
Yes, fleece-bearing animals are shorn on a regular basis, and this is the basis for wool.
Given all the definitions of the word substance, one can safely say that yes, wool is a substance.
If you want to tangle wool (fleece) to make felt, you just need to wash it vigorously. That's why it's important to wash the fleece gently if you want to spin it. Too much action will cause it to felt (tangle together)! How much agitation is needed depends on the type of fleece. Some fleece felts ve…ry easily, some needs more work. Craft felt used to always be made from wool. Now, most of it is synthetic. ( Full Answer )
we'll wouldn't you normally get it off of a sheep? it is where wool would be found because of the fact that farmers shave their sheep for that purpose... sometimes you get it from a dog you never know....
Fleece -- from which wool is sorted, cleaned, carded and spun -- is amorphous. Once the fleece is spun, it takes the shape produced by the spinning process.
Once the sheep have developed thick coat of hair, the process begins with removal of hair along with thin skin layer is called shearing.
Of course it is to warm! Wool is suppost to be warm! Why would you want to be all sweatty in the summer! That sux!
Wool can be used for a variety of things, however, the only thing wool has to do with crafting is the bed. It is used in building for soft boat landings at docks, pixel art, carpet and color coding of some things. It can be dyed as well. Note: it burns rather well, which also adds a whole variety of… fire-based uses. ( Full Answer )
What will happen if you place a red bean seed on a cotton wool in a tube and without putting any water and placing the tube in a warm place?
My educated guess is that nothing would happen if the cotton is dry and the room is of normal humidity. Dry beans do not sprout even at high room temperatures. Why not try it and see, if you are interested?
No. Wool is not a thermoplastic fiber because when exposed to heat, it does not melt and change.

Wool is a sheep's hair or fur. They shear it off. Similar products can be obtained from sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, yak and muskoxen.
Metal wool , also known as wirewool , is a bundle of strands of very fine soft steel filaments.
Cotton is softer. Additionally, cotton is a cellulose fiber taken from the seed pod of a plant. Wool is a keratin fiber and is a variety of fur that sheep have.
Sheep and spiders! Upon killing sheep (post 1.6 beta) the sheep can drop 1 wool block. By right clicking on a sheep while holding shears (made of 2 iron in the inventory crafting table, [top right and bottom left / bottom right top left]) the sheep will drop 2-4 wool. Alternatively, make a 2x2 squar…e of string (dropped by spiders) to get one wool block. ( Full Answer )
Best is a judgement and you are the judge.. Best wool requires a context, and the winner is the wool that is most suitable for the purpose..
Yes, because the animals continue to grow fleece -- like humans continue to grow hair.
You can purchase fleece from a sheep rancher. If you live near a sheep ranch, you may be able to pick bits of fleece from a fence that a sheep has rubbed against.
Humans and animals that grow fleece have existed together on earth since long before humans taught themselves to write. The name you want has been lost to history.
Wool has a lot of very good charcteristics. It is very resistant to fire. It is also a very smart Insulator, so it can keep you warm, when it's cold and keep you cool when it's hot.
In all probability, when these fibres were made into clothing designed to keep bodies warm: yes.
