The uses of wool in textile depend on the sources of it and its availability. We use the majority of wool (72.8%) for apparel. For home furnishing 15-45%, for industrial uses – 7% and exports 5%, accounts for 3.3% of all fibres for apparel.
The uses of wool in textile
The most important use of wool is for apparel coats, jackets, suits, dresses, skirts, slacks made from woven fabrics of varying weights and knitted fabrics’. All these gives the warmth garments and with good tailored look.
In the home furnishing area the major use of wool is in carpets and rugs where we use it more, cover to the carpets and warm in the rugs. Blends of different synthetic fibres with wool for suiting materials are increasingly important. This result in fabrics that are more appropriate in warmer conditions. Polyester is the most important fibre what we use in blending with it.
Alternative uses of wool square measure increasing. Wool could be a terribly helpful product once oil spills occur. Pads made of wool accustom absorb the oil. In 1999 once AN oil spill occurred close to Phillip Island, Australia. The penguine of the Phillip Island fitted with wool sweaters. The sweaters helped maintain the small penguin’s body heat and prevented them from being poisoned by the oil.
