BAA, BAA, BLACK SHEEP.
You all recall in the old nursery
rhyme when the black sheep is ask
ed if he has any wool he replies,
"Yes, sir, three bags full." There Is
and has been plenty of wool but un
til very recent years there has been
little demand for it for several
reasonB, but now it is beginning to
come into its own.
In all the smart city shops one
will find displayed for spring, wool
ensembles, coats, sport suits and
dresses. There is an infinite range
of textures, weaves and colorings
as varied almost as silks and near
ly as delightful.
Wool is the oldest of the fabrics
used by man for clothing and has
been traditionally conservative. Un
til very recently woolen garments
were bought primarily for service.
One's wardrobe consisted only of
woolen necessities whereas one had
However, times are changing and
the element of style and novelty has
entered into the manufacture of
woolen fabrics. Manufacturers are
now having to keep alert to the pub
lic demands and to find out in ad
vance what the season's tastes are
For yeajs silk has been the leader
in wearing apparel. There were
several factors which lead to a de
crease In the use of wool and an
increase in the use of silk. One was
the fact that many woolen mills in
northern France were destroyed
during the war and those that were
left turned their looms over to the
manufacture of khaki and blankets
for the soldiers. Thus with Paris
setting the fashions and having no
wools for several years, it turned to
silks. This actually cut the per
centage of wool used in women's
garments in America fifty per cent.
This swing toward silks pleased the
American public in the trend of lux
ury following the war.
But now there is a decided impet
us for the greater use of woolens.
The sports tendency may have
something to do with it. Johnny
Farrel is recognized as America's
best dressed golfer. When he
switched from wearing plaid golf
stockings and sweaters to plain col
ors, the style scouts noted the
change and soon the wool looms
were turning out less checks and
more plain colors. Since we have
no Prince of Wales or Princess
Mary to set American styles we
have stylists or leaders quite as
marked. These stylists watch cen
ters of smart fashion such as Palm
Beach, the Ritz, etc. Men's clothes
are of three distinct moulds the
Wall street man and his type, the
college student, and Johnny Farrel
and the sport type.
Wools in order to compete suc
cessfully with other fabrics have
had to make a decided change in
color and design. Some of the
light weight fabrics are almost as
light and supple as silks. Tweeds
have outgrown their strict, mannish
character. They have become more
feminized, made subtle and varied.
The woolen industry in this country
nas been slow to yield to the fem
inine influence. But with the addi
tion of woolen stylists to their staffs
wool houses have made a great step
toward bringing wool back to popu
larity. And so this spring to be
right up-to-the-minute In fashion
one must have a woolen outfit, gay
in color and pleasing In design.
