By N A G Johnson, I Russell

Complicated learn into wool technology and know-how is resulting in a greater knowing of the homes of wool. Wool is more and more being visible as a excessive functionality fibre, with new ameliorations and purposes. Advances in wool know-how provides a entire account of those advancements and recommendations. half one comprises advances that experience happened within the creation and processing of wool. subject matters diversity from the development in wool spinning, weaving and colouration, to environmental provide chain administration and to the function of genetic engineering in stronger wool construction. half reports new wool items and functions. Chapters contain the creation of brighter and whiter wool, excessive functionality wool blends and wool for attire. With its unique editors and array of foreign members, this publication should be a worthwhile reference for manufacturers, brands, shops and all these wishing to enhance and comprehend advancements in wool know-how. it's going to even be compatible for researchers in or academia.
