A wool is short for the Liverpool term Wooly Back which is a derogatory expression for people from lancashire and cheshire, originating from the early 1900's when the population of lancashire used to wear a form of sheepskin coat and was considered to be a sheep shagger by scousers.

This of course has not changed much, except the lancashire and cheshire fashion sense has got worse

Uneducated scousers have a tendancy to call anyone outside of Liverpool a wool or wooly back.

Educated scousers understand that the term derives from textile production during the 19th century in Lancashire, more specifically St.Helens folk.

Wooly back is a term used to describe someone from the small farming communities, in Hampshire, of Havant and Waterloovile. The locals speak with a strange dialect, which is a hybrid between West Country and London Cockney.

The surrounding farming villages, Purbrook, Crookhorn, Horndean, Bedhampton and Cowplain are all a stone toss away. They attend all, home and away, Havant and Waterloovile FC fixtures. The blokes will dress up as scarecrows and their wives will wear their sheep skin jackets and fur boots. All clothing will be hand made and fashioned together in a rustic like manor.

Before home games they will drink in The Heron and The West Leigh.
A towny overheard a Wooly back trying to communicate:

Ize fram Point Seven ize is, ize been shopping in BP, we never been having a fuel problem”. “That polak served me, Dawid, he been smelling funny me babba”.

And “Ize can’t stop laffin when ize been shanting”.
