Trendy Babes Bake Wool Roll Bread

I’ve never heard of ‘wool roll bread’.

I’ve never heard of wool rolls or rolls of wool – other than the wool collected from newly shorn sheep.

I’ve been knitting and crocheting since I was very young. The wool I use comes in hanks – which is a large circle of yarn that is twisted for commerce, then wound into a ball for use; or skeins, which is packaged, ready to use, pulling the yarn from the center.

So…. are rolls of wool the wool that comes directly from the animal before carding or combing or spinning?

In looking at the Babes’ Bread I don’t see anything resembling any of the wool yarn that I use.

According to Judy, of Judy’s Gross Eats, and our host kitchen for the month, Wool Roll Bread has been popularized by both a Malaysian and a Vietnamese blogger / baker. Maybe it’s a translation issue.

Or maybe I’ve been in the middle of remotest France for too long.


This bread looks fantastic! It’s fluffy dough that is rolled and filled with all sorts of good stuff – at least by the Babes.

You can make the filling sweet or savory and, as it’s a pull-apart bread, it’s a fun addition to a family (or any) breakfast (sweet) or dinner (savory) or drinks (really fun savory).

If you want to learn more about this interesting Wool Roll Bread and try at baking it yourself head over to Judy’s Gross Eats. You’ll find the recipe, a bit of history, and all the details of baking along this month.

  1. Ha!! I wish I’d known the word “hank” or that I’d thought of describing the wool before “carding or combing or spinning” – that’s what my bread dough and bread was like – not at all the beautiful fluffy Wool Roll Bread the other BBBabes produced.

    Thank you again for showing all the BBBabes’ breads in one spot. It’s so lovely to see them here.

    • It’s always fun to read about everyone’s efforts. They were all so different (and yet similar) for this bread, I could really see it with ham and goat cheese…..

  2. Thank you for the lovely roundup. I suppose the rolls would be a bit difficult to eat if they really did resemble a roll of yard. Fluffy is better.
