Adelaide Wools

Adelaide Wools
Most of the wools from the State of South Australia are sold in Adelaide, and are known as Adelaide wools. The Australian merino also bears this name. It has a fine fibre, sound staple, but irregular in length, and contains a large amount of yolk and sand. Lower in quality than Sydney wool and mostly used for weft. Has good felting qualities.
