The similar S/P ratios in the follicle populations for the five sheep breeds largely explains the visual similarity of staple structure and density in their fleeces confirming follicle studies in carpet wool sheep in Australia (Champion and Robards, 2000) and New Zealand (Chapman and Ward, 1979).
1) which is within the range of values reported for carpet wool sheep breeds (Chapman and Ward, 1979).
The coarseness and fleece structure of Iranian carpet wool breeds is not due to primary follicle density but rather secondary follicle density which in turn causes lower fibre diameter, decreased level of medullation or variability in the fibre length and diameter within the staple.
However it can be concluded that S/P ratio and follicle density of Iranian sheep breeds studied fall within the range of common carpet wool sheep breeds and may be recommended for carpet wool production.
Value created by carpet wool now barely covers shearing costs in the UK, he added.
