Wool Bunting
by Miriam Sullivan for Classic Attire

Wool bunting is a lightweight wool fabric that was extensively used in American flags until the mid 20th century.
Woven in a plain weave with worsted wool it was inexpensive, sturdy, and water resistant; many historical flags made in wool bunting still exist in excellent shape today.
During the American Civil War (1861-1865) wool bunting was imported from Great Britain by both Union and Confederate forces, and was a common choice for flags on both sides. This was especially true of the C.S.A., which was driven by the expense and scarcity of silk into switching to wool bunting for their combat unit flags in 1862.
Wool bunting was outmoded during the 20th century by Nylon, which is almost indestructible and incredibly cheap. It is now extremely difficult to locate, and relativity unheard of.
