The origin of the saying, All Wool and a Yard Wide, is from an old American expression. In the 1800s, unscrupulous operators of woolen mills would include other fibers in the fabric and produce cloth less than a full 36 inches wide. Honest mill owner, Captain J.O. Ballard in New York, used the slogan All Wool and a Yard Wide to describe the quality of his products. Over time, the expression evolved into an idiom that was used to describe an honest, genuine and sincere person or firm, a firm that gives good value for the money. We hope that our customers feel that g. woolikers . . . 'all wool & a yard wide' . . . lives up to its namesake!
