Wool Has Amazing History!

Wool has amazing history around the world, even here in the U.S.A. Our national anthem is inspired by wool! Yes, it's true. The flag that flew over Fort McHenry after the Battle of Baltimore inspired our beautiful national anthem. Huge in size, and flying freely after a fierce firestorm through the night, it deeply moved a man to pen such important words. Wool is IN that amazing banner, and you can see it today. Where? The Smithsonian Institution. Can't get there? Read about the War of 1812, and visit the Smithsonian's website.

Enjoy learning how sheep helped to shape our great nation. We wouldn't be what we are today, without them.
