Wool is also durable, and I speak from personal experience, since this beauty is older than my first born!  Not kidding, this scrumptious wool coat is over 30 years old and not only wards off the cold like a champ, it makes me feel all warm and squishy on the inside too.

It’s been my side kick for so long, I’ve named her… BaaSheepBaaaa (no snickering) and it makes me smile to reminisce about all the lovely events BaaSheepBaaa and I have attended over the decades.  Let’s face it, my friends, she’s is so cool, BaaSheepBaaa should have her own Instagram Page!  Would you follow her?
