Thread Name: Tarry wool (what is it?)
Subject: RE: Tarry wool (what is it?)
Never heard the term "Archangel" tar before, but wondered from the description whether it might be similar to "Stockholm" tar which is familiar to many nautical folk. It turns out to be the same stuff, also known as "pine" tar. Useful stuff.
