Metrology has a major role to play in this exchange of ownership since objective measurements now provide most of the information that determines the value of the fibre. Over the past 50 years the objectively measured parameters for wool have been incorporated into the contracts and specifications utilised by the buyers and sellers along this pipeline. 2. Wool metrology has also facilitated the streamlining of selling systems, resulting in very significant increases in productivity and reductions in cost.
