Posted on 19/06/2018

Fibre curvature is a measure of the crimp seen in wool fibres.  Interest in fibre curvature is generally focussed in the Merino sector where wool is often identified as being either "traditional" Superfine wool (highly-crimped staples) or "bold-crimping" wool (lower-crimped staples produced by larger and plainer-bodied Merinos.  In New Zealand, fibre curvature measurements are provided on Merino sale lots since these measurements are only available from LASERSCAN or OFDA instruments.
