Just curious, are the terms pure new wool and virgin wool interchangeable or is there a difference?

Only one of them should be wearing white on their wedding day.

I thought virgin wool meant there were no reused strands in the yarn.

They are synonymous and refer to wool that has not been previously manufactured into a finished product.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
