Why wool is preferred over other yarn ?
Wool is selected for the baseball's inner windings.
  • It is because of its natural resiliency and "memory" which allows it to be compressed when pressure is applied. Quickly it return to its original shape.
  • Despite being hit repeatedly during a game it retain its perfect roundness.
Outer winding :
  • A polyester/cotton blend providing outer winding add strength and decrease the risk of wear & tear when the ball's cowhide cover is applied.
