Worsted wool is one of the most commonly used and the most dependable of staples used in textile manufacture. When wool is sheared from a sheep, the hairs are all different lengths. After shearing the fibers are sorted, and only the longest fibers of the wool fleece are used to produce "worsted" fabric. Worsted wool is wool that had been combed and tightly twisted.

The long staple gives the finished product stability and a smooth, clear finish. Wool's molecular structure makes it stain resistant and elastic, two qualities inherent in our solid color worsted twill tape. It stretches to keep stockings gartered, yet has a tensile strength greater than cotton.
