It wasn’t until after completing my woolclassing training

that I realised how important how it was to be able to recognise

the tactile qualities of wool without using any visual stimuli.

Before a fleece was consigned to a bale with a AAA brand on it,

It would have to be rated as some of the softest wool in its category/class.

To help improve our tactile skills a trainer asked us

to class/categorise wool using touch only.



The fleece sitting on the end of my wool table

would have been held back to donate to a local fleece show fund raiser.

 Therefore it would have been one of the softest I produced each year.
