The curious case of the wool soap
Dear Great Britain, you are presently home to almost 34 million sheep (in 2015 according to the British Wool Organization), the production of wool is well beyond the 21,000 tonnes (always according with the same source), and the trade and export of wool flourished since the 13th century thanks to the merchants from the Flanders and especially from Italy. The quality of your wool is undeniable, the wool industry existed before the Roman conquest, and wool is, unequivocally, part of the British history and heritage, more so than any other commodity produced on this island. Than, it's with great discomfort that I ask you: WHY THE FUCK IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO FIND A WOOL SOAP IN YOUR SHOPS?!?
