I subscribe to Amazonas Magazine, which Mary Sweeney is an editor. She contributes articles to most issues. This is the best fish hobby magazine I have read, it does not have the normal redundant novice, beginner information taking up valuable pages in each issue.

As for your wool, I have always just removed it. I do not believe it will just disappear into oblivion in our lifetime.

If you do not already subscribe to that magazine, take a look at it well worth the price. copy link into browser, or simply google

Its best to remove the wool. Don't know if it would hurt anything if you left it but I have never took the chance to find out.
