The use of wool dates back thousands of years to the Neolithic period when humans first domesticated sheep. The earliest evidence of woolen textiles comes from the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, and the Indus Valley, where wool was used to make clothing and other items.

Wool was highly valued in ancient times for its warmth, softness, and durability, and it was used to make everything from blankets and clothing to rugs and tapestries. As trade networks expanded, wool became an important commodity, and it was exported from countries such as England, Spain, and Morocco to other parts of the world.

In the Middle Ages, wool production became a major industry in Europe, and it was a key driver of the economy in many countries. Woolen textiles were highly prized, and the development of new weaving and dyeing techniques helped to make them even more valuable.

During the Industrial Revolution, the production of wool became mechanized, and new techniques were developed for washing, carding, and spinning wool fibers. This led to an increase in the availability of woolen textiles, and they became more affordable for people of all social classes.
