The queen of the barnyard!

 
 Happy Friday!

I really love the Internet, and yes, I have an art for overstating the obvious! I wanted to find something cute and fiber related to share with you today. All I did was Google sheep cat and this is what I got!




 
The lion may be king of the jungle, but Kitty is the queen of wherever she sits!





 This find also gives me the perfect tie-in for Kitty's fiber query.
Of course you know the answer, but think about it anyway!

        Why is wool warm?

Have a great weekend!

Believe it or not I have never asked myself this question! Very clever one! I have just taken the warmth of the wool for granted...

Thank God for Google though, because here is the answer I found: Wool is warm because its fibers are nonconductors of heat and its crimp permits it to enmesh still air. It is highly absorbent and releases moisture slowly. Its tensile strength is one fourth greater than that of cotton.(http://answers.encyclopedia.com/question/why-wool-warm-108262.html) This partly answers the question, though I would rather get it in more sophisticated way from you :)
