Wool tam question

I was looking into buying a wool tam to wear when I don't want my hair all over the place. I know wool encourages knotting- but now that I've looked at tams, it turns out there are at least three kinds of wool! Does the type of wool matter? I purchased one labeled "sheep's wool" (doesn't nearly all wool come from sheep? Perhaps the seller is just dumb) and one labeled "merino wool" and I saw some that were another type, as well. Does it matter? The merino wool one is much more comfortable, but…See More
