Sign for the Woolpack Hotel
Sign for the Woolpack Hotel
While the Woolpack and the Woolsack may seem to be different versions of the same sign, they are quite different. The Woolpack is a pack of wool weighing 240 lbs while a Woolsack is simply a sack of wool of any weight. These signs grew popular in wool producing areas and also reflect the importance of wool in the country's economy for centuries.
