Re: [BKARTS] "Cotton" vs "wool"



> "I need a slash"

I love that story!

To further confuse things on cotton wool - most knitting yarns, even if not
remotely made of wool, are referred to as wool by the non-knitting world.  A
less common usage, but not entirely gone, is to refer to all forms of thread
as cotton.
