Fleece Analysis Legend

All fleece statistics are annualised, so they can be compared easily.

Date = Date sample taken

Micron = mean fibre diameter

SD = standard deviation

CF = comfort factor (% fibres < 30 micron)

TGFW = Total Greasy Fleece Weight (weight of fleece without bellies, brisket, lower legs, etc)

SL = staple length (at midside) fibre growth in mm/day

Lustre = lustre score (washed fleece)  1 (extreme);  3 (good);  5 (poor/none). Calibrated to Mulberry silk (score 3) and Tussah Silk (score 1)

 

Density = we use a fleece density index (FDI) which 'calculates' the density of an animal taking into consideration the weight, micron, sd and length of the fleece. As we are still trialling the index and comparing the results to actual skin biopsies, we have not provided the numerical results, but have illustrated these results in the density indicator graph for each animal. Once we have confirmed the acuracy of the FDI, we will provide the actual calculated score, which should correspond to the follicle density in a skin biopsy.

FN = Follicle density in number per mm2 from skin biopsy

S:P = Ratio of Secondary to Primary fibres from skin biopsy

W/D3 = ratio of clean fleece weight to the cube of the fibre diameter. Determines the value of the fleece produced by each animal and is comparable from one year to the next. A higher number indicates a finer, more dense animal with a higher value fleece.

$$$$$ >0.50; $$$$= 0.40-0.49; $$$= 0.30 - 0.39; $$= 0.20 - 0.29; $< 0.20.
