The article reports on the Lincolnshire Curly Coat which is said to be the only breed of pig ever to be sheared like a sheep. Hair from the Lincolnshire Curly Coat is said to have been sent to a textile factory in Cheshire, England where it was made into men's sweaters. According to the article, the breed was so popular in the early 20th century that the catalog from the 1911 Lincolnshire Show shows more than 100 Curly Coat entries, but numbers declined after World War II.
