Wool fiber and hair fiber are the natural hair growth of certain animals. It’s composed of protein. Protein consists of complex organic compounds containing amino acids. The Wool Fiber is obtained from sheep. The breeding of sheep and the production of wool fiber are more costly processes than the cultivation of plant fibers. Consequently, wool fabrics are more expensive than cotton and linen. Hair fibers have all the qualities of wool and, in general, are more expensive than wool. Wool could be sourced from the fleece of sheep and other animals. These include cashmere from goats, mohair from rabbits, and other types of wool from camellias, musk ox, Angora rabbit, vicuna, guanaco, pashmina, and alpaca. Wool has some special qualities which distinguish it from hair or fur. The best quality wool comes from merino sheep, found in Australia.
