Steel wool comes from a variety of alpacca llamas raised in the very dry deserts of northern Chile. Any rain would rust the wool so it has to be dry. They're fed on a mineral rich diet. I hope this helps.

Those sheep were highly prized in medieval times when people were knitting steel wool armor.

I don't know. But if you hold an empty beercan to your ear you can hear the brewery.

Bronze is a much neglected metal these days. Great stuff and the wool also. The bronze age, now those were the days.
