    SO??


    Nothing wrong with the spelling.

    The words are spelled w-o-o-l-e-n and w-o-o-d-e-n
    Woolen implies that something is constructed of  or contains wool
    Wooden implies that something is constructed of  or contains wood 
    My best guess is that "en" is a suffix that translates to "of"   

    Huh?

    Wool is the fur or coat of a sheep or a llama and clothing or bedding made of wool is called woolen clothing or woolen blankets.Wood is made out of trees and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes.Wood is used to build houses and furniture.These would be called wooden houses and wooden furniture.I hope this helps.Peace.

    Thanks a lot.
