No matter which forms, wool has a special texture that you cannot find in any other materials and it almost give you a special 3D-effect, which personalizes your look and style.
Second, wool is very good when it is cold outside and you need to hold your warmth, and even thin wool styles add warmth to you. Therefore, a woolen piece of clothing is a perfect choice for fall and winter times.
Third, wool pieces hold their shape, allowing you to keep you woolen pieces in many years if they are properly treated. Compared to other materials, such as cotton, the same feature is not seen, and you will have to replace your cotton sweater more often with a new than your wool sweater.
