Peggy Hart is the author of Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation.

Keeping Americans warm for four centuries, wool has been an essential commodity from colonial times to the present. Its colorful and epic tale has impacted millions of lives, including artisans, inventors, immigrants, merchants, mill owners, millworkers, slaves, and Native Americans, to farmers and advertisers.

A story of technological and social change, marketing forces, and our choices as consumers, Wool: Unraveling an American Story of Artisans and Innovation is a must-read for anyone who has knitted (or worn!) socks, woven a piece of cloth, or curled up with a warm wool blanket.

There are more than 100 Illustrations, from historical to contemporary.
