The New Zealand Wool Testing Authority have produced a brochure with Staple Length and Strength Measurement for Crossbred Wool. The following objectives in introducing a staple length and strength measurement:
to provide an independent and objective basis for the industry which can be used for trading purposes; and
to reduce risk by providing a better ability to predict the processing outcome of the raw material.
The brochure explains what measurements are provided, how to read what the results mean, what the benefits are of staple length and strength measurements and trial feedback.
