Research on Wool Improvements in Modern Shanxi
This article researched on wool improvements in Modern Shanxi, compared the qualities of Merino wool, Shanxi wool and three generations of hybrids wool. It made a comprehensive analysis on wool fineness, wool length, crimp contraction, impurity content, grease content, wool color and etc. The results showed that after the three times’ hybridization, the wool qualities had great improvements, the third generation hybrid’s wool qualities were close to the Merino wool. The wool length was 0.023mm, the percent of fine wool was 100%, the crimp contraction in 3cm length was 15~21, the average wool length was 11.2cm, impurity content was 13.9%, grease content was 25.6%.
