Wool is prepared for sale according to subjective measurements when it first comes off the sheep’s back, and is then objectively measured off-farm by the Australian Wool Testing Authority. Today, thanks to new technologies to test wool fineness and the rising demand for Superfine Merino wool, Australia is the largest producer of Merino wool.

METR Objective Measurement The subject of Wool Metrology covers all aspects of wool measurement or metrology and its effect on the marketing of Australian wool.
It introduces the concept of objective measurement and explains in detail the procedures and measurements involved to objectively specify the Australian clip. The value of measurement to the industry is [ ]. Topic 9: Wool Style and Wool Colour Measurement.
Style is of particular importance in the superfine end of the market and becomes less important as fibre diameter increases. This topic describes the visual characteristics used to appraise wool style and examines the relationship between subjective appraisal and objective measurement of wool style.
From the Collection of National Wool Museum 26 Moorabool Street Geelong Victoria Description "The objective measurement of raw wool" -Ms J Welsman, May Amongst items collected in Australian Wool Corporation folder (W). Object Registration Keywords.
The world has moved away from subjective appraisal of raw wool characteristics and has entered an era of objective measurement and specification, and the raw wool trade is rapidly moving towards sale by total description which necessitates the accurate, rapid and cost effective measurement of all the raw wool characteristics important in determining price, textile performance and end-use.
Objective measurement of wool. criteria, methods and materials. An outline of some of the techni cal aspects of the objective measurement of wool—processes that will mean major cost savings to the wool industry.
by A. Ingleton, Instructor, Sheep and Wool Branch. Objective testing is the scientific measurement of the important. Lack of supply of suitable wool fibre may be another explanation for the wide range of fibre diameter values seen in these garments.
The objective measurement of the Australian wool clip (which produces abouttonnes of fibre annually and supplies about 70% of wool traded internationally and possibly 50% of apparel wool production) allows the supply of fibre for each fibre.
Purchase Advances in Wool Technology - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNWoolcheque uses a combination of objective and subjective wool measurements and characteristics to price wool. Objective measurements include diameter (micron), length, strength, position of break, vegetable matter and colour.
AWEX-ID covers subjective characteristics. AWTA Wool Testing provides independent and objective wool certification services. AWTA Wool Testing's major services are sampling, testing and certifying the yield, fibre diameter, vegetable matter content, staple length and staple strength of greasy wool before it is sold.
Objective KES-F measurements related to certain quality attributes of wool products (smoothness, stiffness, fullness, garment appearance) are used as input into a wool textile data base system. thereby enhancing the quality and integrity of the Australian wool clip. Australian Wool Testing Authority Ltd (AWTA) AWTA is the entity that provides wool testing services.
Wool offered for sale is nearly always offered for sale with objective measurement results. In preparation for sale, the wool broker will arrange for AWTA.
Objective Measurement classes for Merino and Poll Merino. Sheep are shorn and then judged at the show using objective measurement for both wool and meat and conformation attributes.
Judging criteria: The sheep are lined up after being shorn and judged for breed type, structure and soundness for a maximum of points. Woolcheque uses worksheets to store all objective (test results) and subjective (AWEX-ID) information about a wool clip. The worksheet is essentially a table with the lines in the wool clip shown horizontally in rows, similar to a wool broker's account sales.
AWTA's database contains extensive information for the number of bales tested, the weight of wool tested and associated objective measurements. As almost every lot of wool sold in Australia is certified for Yield and Fibre Diameter before sale, and because the certification services available since /92 have been solely provided by AWTA.
Grading Wool: In the United States wool is graded using one of three methods. The "American" or "Blood" System: This is an older system where wool is graded depending upon the amount or percent of "fine wool" sheep breeding (Merino/Rambouillet blood) there is in the animal being example, if a "grade" ewe is bred by a purebred Merino, the lamb from that mating will produce a 1/2.
Book Description. A critical and comprehensive examination of the origination and application of developments in the textile industry and its products, this book provides one of the only state-of-the-science reviews carried out in recent years.
It covers the measurement of wool fiber properties, specifically those of raw wool. An intermediate step between the comprehensive wearer trial and the ComfortMeter machine measurement is a ‘sleeve trial’ system developed by the CRC’s Wool Program.
This uses the fact that the forearm is the most sensitive part of the body to wool comfort. Two fabrics can be compared in a single test – with the left and right arm.
Wool is the textile fiber obtained from sheep and other animals, including cashmere and mohair from goats, qiviut from muskoxen, hide and fur clothing from bison, angora from rabbits, and other types of wool from camelids.
Wool consists of protein together with a small percentage of lipids. In this regard it is chemically quite distinct from the more dominant textile, cotton, which is mainly.The Code of Practice for the preparation of Australian Wool Clips (COP) is an Australian industry document that describes the recommended practices and standards to which wool should be prepared.
The COP aspires to three objectives: 1.Australia is the world’s largest exporter of wool. China is Australia’s most significant customer for greasy wool and the world’s largest importer of wool.
In the mids about 20% of Australia’s greasy wool went to China, but this has grown to well over 70%.
