It’s true, they do.
To return the affection, I made myself a woolen skirt out of this fabric:
I cut two 28.5″ by 21″ pieces and sewed the short sides together with french seams. Then I hemmed the top and pinned it to a loop of elastic already measured and sewn to fit around my waist.
In order to keep the waistband flat, I sewed down the top and bottom of that hem with a zigzag stitch.
