Advanced research into wool science and technology is leading to a better understanding of the properties of wool. Wool is increasingly being seen as a high performance fibre, with new modifications and applications. Advances in wool technology presents a comprehensive account of these developments and innovations. Hugh Howey is the author of Wool, a book he wrote while working as a bookseller, writing each morning and during every lunch break for nearly three years. Originally self-published in , Wool has grown into a New York Times bestseller. He now lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella/5(K). Wool adsorbs water.. Once inside the fiber, there is a temporary chemical bond (hydrogen bond) attaching water molecules to the surfaces of inner structures of the fiber. All adsorbtion is exothermic, meaning that it releases heat. Breaking the hydrogen bond and freeing the water molecule, desorption, requires heat. That is how wool can be cooling as well as heating! A Sheep CRC survey estimated that 4, degree graduates are needed in the Australian livestock industry within the next 5 years. The survey was conducted by an independent, international survey company, TNS, on behalf of the Sheep CRC, across organisations in the Australian livestock industry with a focus on the sheep and wool industry.
Wool fibre has natural interlocking scales on its outer surface that ensure fibre strength, pliability and natural resistance to dirt and stains. % wool carpet also benefits from natural protection from the build-up of static electricity and is a superior sounds and heat insulator. colour of wool fibres may vary from of f-white to light cream. Fabrics made from wool are soft, smooth, absorbent and do not wrinkle easily. These do not allow the body heat to go out and act as insulators. This is why the fabric made out of these fibres is used as winter wear. Wool . WOOL INDUSTRY IWTO T+ IWTO is the global authority for standards in the wool textile industry.
