- n. By wool we mean the covering coat of the domesticated sheep, that can also be known as fleece. The coat is removed from the animal, cleaned up and processed to produce a fibre to be woven. We can find different types of wool, like the Merino, which comes from a specific breed of sheep and the lambwool, which comes from lambs. There exists also wool from camelides.
