Are men allowed to wear wool?


Is it permissible for men to wear clothing made from wool?


Yes, it is permissible. Wool is primarily obtained from sheep, and a lot of clothes are made using it. The Prophet ﷺ used to wear clothes made from wool, so there is no harm in this. However, it must be tailored according to the appearance of men’s clothing – not that of the women’s.
