The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported this week that a new technique which eliminates two steps in the wool manufacturing process could open a new market for wool growers.
The new technology, called ?non-woven wool,? does not need to be spun or woven.
Dr. Len Stephens, Chief Executive of Australian Wool Innovations, says it will provide an alternative to polar fleece and can be used to make any kind of soft padding.
