Wool Technology


Mercerized wool is subjected to severe chlorination treatment to remove the scales on the surface of the wool, reducing the difference in friction coefficient between forward and backward movement of the wool. The processed wool is glossy and has a smooth and soft feel, meeting the performance requirements of IWS TM31 knitted products that can be machine washed.

The main characteristics of mercerized wool are: anti shrinkage, machine washable, anti pilling, and the surface of wool fabric has a soft luster.

Shrinkage Treatment

Anti-shrink wool is treated with medium chlorination and resin to change the scales on the surface of the wool. The processed woolen top has a soft and shiny feel, meeting the anti shrink performance of IWS TM31/TM254 machine washable/easy to care woolen tops.

The main characteristics of anti shrink wool are: anti shrink, machine washable, and the surface of wool fabric has a luster.

Wool Knowledge Base

Located in the southern hemisphere at latitudes of 20 ° to 50 °, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Uruguay, and Argentina are home to the world’s best natural pastures. Here, the ecology is natural, the temperature is suitable, the land is vast, the soil is fertile, there is sufficient water source and abundant rainfall, the grass is abundant, and it is most suitable for the growth of cattle and sheep. It is the main producer of high-quality wool worldwide.

All fine wool breeds in the world are produced by Merino sheep or Merino sheep of Merino lineage. After more than two hundred years of scientific breeding and grazing management, the best Merino sheep have been cultivated. The yarn fabric made from its wool fibers is the preferred raw material for various high-end textiles.

Fortune Cat® sends personnel to inspect pastures around the world every year, selecting different types of wool to ensure the quality of raw wool, providing exclusive high-quality raw materials for industrial chain customers, and continuously meeting market demand.

Australian Wool:

70% of Australian sheep are purebred Merino. Merino sheep have become treasures in the world’s wool due to their high fiber density and excellent wool quality.

The good reputation of Australian wool internationally is also related to Australia’s adherence to strict export standards. For many years, in order to ensure the quality of exported wool, Australia has established a wool testing agency to provide objective and authoritative testing services, which has been recognized by the entire industry and has played a very important role in the sales and export trade of Australian wool.

As the world’s largest producer and exporter of wool, Australia has wool exchanges in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth, catering to global market customers. The rise and fall of Australian wool production directly affects the international wool market. In the past few years, the price of Australian wool has maintained a steady growth trend. The vast majority of wool and wool products produced in Australia are for export, mainly sold to more than 20 countries and regions worldwide. It is the country with the highest quantity, best quality, and largest export of wool in the world.

New Zealand Wool:

New Zealand, as the world’s second largest producer and exporter of wool after Australia, holds an important position in the world’s wool production and trade, accounting for about 10% of the world’s wool production.

New Zealand is the world’s leading golden pasture. 80 million years ago, New Zealand broke away from the Earth’s continental plate, preserving its original original appearance and natural environment. Clean air, pure water sources, fertile soil, and a warm and humid marine climate throughout the year are all guarantees of the superior quality of New Zealand wool.

The sheep farming industry in New Zealand began in the late 18th century, initially brought in by British colonizers. Later, Merino sheep were introduced from neighboring Australia, which had achieved success in developing sheep farming. In the 1850s, a large-scale sheep farming industry developed on natural grasslands along the coasts of the two islands, with a total number of sheep raised reaching over 300000. According to 2016 statistics, the stock of sheep in New Zealand was 27.6 million.

South African Wool:

South Africa is one of the main producers of clothing wool in the world, with approximately 21 million sheep raised nationwide. The average fineness of wool is about 20.5 microns, of which 90% is sold worldwide.

South Africa’s abundant natural resources, unique climatic conditions, and strict wool grading system of the South African wool organization provide a foundation for high-quality wool.

South Africa is a vast and beautiful country with a rich history of wool and sheep farming. In 1789, the first batch of Merino sheep arrived at Cape of Good Hope, becoming the starting point of South Africa’s sheep farming and wool industry. During the colonial period, Cape of Good Hope was the most important wool producing area in South Africa, which quickly spread throughout the country and became one of the pillars of South Africa’s industry.

Wool Application:

The history of human utilization of wool can be traced back to the Neolithic Age, spreading from Central Asia to the Mediterranean and other parts of the world, becoming the main textile material in Asia and Europe. Due to the unique and superior properties of wool, in recent years, with the development of the textile industry, the development of wool products has changed rapidly. Wool of different fineness is used for processing clothing, indoor textiles, and industrial textiles.

• Children wear made of wool

Allow children’s skin to breathe freely, keep warm in winter and cool in summer, and protect them from the threat of ultraviolet radiation and fires.

• Wool made casual wear, sportswear, and workwear

It can effectively control the generation of sweating and odors, providing excellent comfort, health, and thoughtfulness. Wool fibers have natural elasticity, with a natural elasticity of up to 30%. At the same time, wool has resilience, moisture absorption, and unique flame retardancy, making it suitable for processing sportswear and workwear, ensuring health and safety.

• Carpets with high wool content in homes and public places

It can reduce dust in the air, regulate indoor humidity, reduce heat loss, and absorb noise. About 10% -20% of the heat in a home is dissipated through the floor, and wool carpets can provide insulation for the room, saving an average of 11.3% in household energy consumption.

• Wool indoor products

It can improve indoor fire safety and air quality. Wool has natural flame retardancy, does not melt or drip, and releases less smoke and toxic gases during combustion than other commonly used fibers. In addition, the complex cellular structure allows wool to release a natural chemical, purifying the air and maintaining it clean for up to 30 years. German researchers have found that five buildings had formaldehyde levels exceeding the World Health Organization’s requirement of 0.05PPM (volume concentration). After 24 hours of adding wool materials, the formaldehyde content in these five buildings decreased to below 0.05PPM.

• Wool bedding

It can increase deep sleep by 25% and enhance fire safety. Recent studies have found that using wool blankets can lower a person’s heart rate throughout the entire sleep process, making sleep more soothing and peaceful.

• Wool curtains and home accessories

It can reduce noise pollution. Indoor soft synthetic home accessories are prone to catching fire, while wool products can reduce the damage caused by fires and further control indoor humidity.

• More industrial applications

The characteristics of wool play a unique role in various industrial applications. Wool is the best sound insulation material for engine compartments and car interiors, and wool is the raw material for high-end piano felt billiards.

Benefits of Wool:

Wool is Natural, Biodegradable and Renewable.

● Natural

There is no argument that wool is natural and is not man-made. Wool grows on the sheep naturally as a form of protection against the elements of nature such as the sun, rain, snow, wind, and hail.

● Biodegradable

When wool is disposed of and is buried in the ground, in comparison to other fibres, depending upon soil conditions it quickly breaks down or biodegrades. Wool is rich in Nitrogen a beneficial nutrient, i.e. comprising around 16 % by weight, which after decomposing is released into the soil.

● Renewable

Wool is a renewable resource. To produce wool, sheep need grass and water. Most sheep are shorn of their wool once per year, and the wool naturally grows back, then it is shorn the following year again and so on.

● Odour Management

Wool prolongs the build-up of odours. In fact, sweat itself does not smell but forms a warm and a damp environment which enables bacteria which cause the smell to multiply very quickly. Because wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight before feeling wet, this high amount of absorption prolonged the onset of bacterial growth. This means that wool garments are less smelly and need washing less frequently, thus reducing the environmental impact of laundering, resulting in less water and energy usage, less detergent, and a reduction in the amount of effluent disposed.

● Fire Resistant

Wool has natural inherent flame-resistant properties. In comparison to other fibres, wool is difficult to ignite and must reach a temperature of approaching 600°C before it does so. Also, when the source of the flame is removed, wool extinguishes itself leaving only a char.

● UV Resistant

Wool has evolved over thousands of years and has developed inbuilt protection against harmful UV radiation. Most Merino sheep thrive in hot climates such as Australia and South Africa where temperatures during the summer months reach more than 40°C are not uncommon.

● Wool is Easy to Care for

Many the chemical processes applied to wool by New Chuwa render the wool Machine Washable in accordance with Woolmark standards (Test Method 31). This enables the consumer to safely machine wash their garment made from them multiple times without the fear of shrinkage or colour bleeding or fading taking place. Wool also has excellent stain release properties. When wool is immersed in water, the wool fibres swell thus allowing dirt, sweat, and stains,to be able to be released quickly.
