I broke out in hives from a wool coat where it touched the skin on my upper chest, neck & wrists, right were the lining ends!  Due to the hives I should consider this a true allergy, not just a sensitivity, correct?  It is weird because I got the coat last year, & don't remember any issues, this year 1st time I wear it I'm miserable!

It could just be contact irritation, even with the hives.  That said, you can develop an allergy at any time.

Yes, that would be a true allergy. But have you had it cleaned or anything? It's possible you're reaction to something in the wool, not the wool itself.
