Chinese for wool?

My church is collecting hand knit and crochet scarves for the homeless. To encourage people to participate, they're even providing yarn for those who want it. Since I like knitting and doing good, I stopped by to get some yarn. It was mostly acrylic in various colors and qualities, but I was fortunate enough to find some much maligned wool in the stash. At least, I think it's wool. It certainly feels like wool, but the labels are in Chinese.



Does anybody read Chinese? Can you tell me what this yarn is? Brand? Fiber content? I'd be grateful for any light you can shed on this.

Oooh, mystery wool. It's very pretty. Unfortunately I can't help you with the tags. I've only recently learned to tell the difference between written Korean and other written Asian languages, so all I can add is that your yarn doesn't seem to be Korean. Sorry I couldn't help more.

According to this,

it looks like it is 100% wool.
