By N A G Johnson, I Russell

Complex examine into wool technology and know-how is resulting in a greater knowing of the homes of wool. Wool is more and more being noticeable as a excessive functionality fibre, with new differences and functions. Advances in wool know-how offers a entire account of those advancements and strategies. half one comprises advances that experience happened within the construction and processing of wool. issues variety from the development in wool spinning, weaving and colouration, to environmental provide chain administration and to the function of genetic engineering in more desirable wool creation. half studies new wool items and functions. Chapters comprise the creation of brighter and whiter wool, excessive functionality wool blends and wool for attire. With its exclusive editors and array of foreign members, this publication could be a invaluable reference for manufacturers, brands, outlets and all these wishing to enhance and comprehend advancements in wool expertise. it's going to even be compatible for researchers in or academia.

A small proportion of the Australian clip is also certified for colour. This is in contrast with the New Zealand clip where almost 100% is measured for colour. Similarly 70% of Australian wool is measured for staple length and strength whereas only a minor proportion is measured in New Zealand. Some of these parameters assume different importance depending upon the breed of sheep from which the wool is harvested and the commercial requirements in the country of origin. Other, non-certified information, such as mean fibre curvature (MFC), vegetable matter base (VMB) broken down into burrs, seed and shive (as well as hard heads and twigs), along fibre fineness profile, and dark and medullated fibre is also available.

Collagen, elastin and silk are candidate fibrous proteins and if expressed at sufficiently high levels in the cortex they would be expected to alter physical properties depending on whether they were deposited in the normal fibrous form or as amorphous deposits. Of note is spider drag-silk, a particularly strong silk. The gene for this has been isolated and characterised, and the monomeric form of the protein has been expressed in the milk of goats (Williams, 2003). , 2000). The prospect of expressing the silk gene in the wool of transgenic sheep to strengthen it was considered by the CRC for Premium Quality Wool several years ago but it was not considered to be sufficiently commercially viable (C.
