Sir Basil Gould British Political Officer in Sikkim fond of Sikkim's handspun wools

Sir Basil Gould, Britain's Political Officer in Sikkim was very fond of Sikkim's wool. Those handspun wools used to be made into sea boots stockings. The press clip from the TIMES reads that the wool from Sikkim was well appreciated. It is mentioned that the lamas had prayed during the last War (probably the WWI) for the success of the farming of the wools. The wool suited the best gumboot stockings. The wool was such that it was said the wool kept the heart and the feet 'well' of the Britishers.  


Sir Basil John Gould, CMG, CIE (1883–1956) was a British Political Officer in Sikkim, Bhutan and Tibet from 1935 to 1945. An interesting sentence from Gould written by Anna Balikci Denzongpa in one of the articles published at Bulletin of Tibetology, Gangtok; where in his memoirs " The Jewel in the Lotus" he writes about the Raj Bhawan of Gangtok the then British Residency as "perhaps the most attractive medium sized home in the whole of India.
