Abstract

Few in 2019 appreciate that the throwaway culture of textiles in which synthetics are so prominent, came into being partly as a result of contrived shortages caused by military demand for natural fibres, most especially wool. Wool is critical to understanding military strategy in the modern era and in turn military uses of this fibre have shaped contemporary civilian society and our uses of textiles.
