Physical analysis of the fleece of sheep for biological purposes. II. Estimation of the number and mean diameter of wool fibres from a cast of their cross-section
Australian Journal of Agricultural Research
2(2) 195 - 201
AbstractA technique has been developed for making a cast of the cross-section of a bundle of wool fibres under defined packing conditions. By counting the fibre impressions per unit area in representative portions of the cast, both the total number of fibres and the mean diameter can be rapidly calculated within fairly close limits of error.
