A "wool pooh" is a "whirlpool" pronounced with a Southern accent. However, Byron says that this is Winnie the Pooh's evil twin, who drowns people.

Byron originally makes up the idea of the Wool Pooh, describing it as a kind of bogey man who hides underwater and snatches away children, in order to scare Kenny and Joey so they won't go near Collier's Landing. In Kenny's mind, however, the Wool Pooh takes on a hazy physical shape, kind of like the grim reaper - hooded, faceless, and terrifying. For Kenny, the Wool Pooh represents death and his fear of death. It appears when he is caught in the whirlpool and almost drowns, and again at the site of the church bombing when he finds the little girl's shoe.

A whool pooh  is just "whirlpool" said with a southern accent. But Byron seizes the oppurtunity to scare Joey and Kenny and says it's Winne the Pooh's evil twin that will drown them.

A Wool Pooh is a Whirlpool. Grandma Sands said that it was a whirlpool, but Byron misunderstood it and told Kenny and Joey that it is a Wool Pooh, which is Winnie the Pooh's evil twin brother.

The wool pooh just means Whirl pool in a southern Style accent, but byron came up with it to scare kenny and joey to keep them away from the landing. what Kenny saw was a mirage of death, nothing more than that.
