The useful range in these instances is more difficult to define. 6 Advances in wool technology Selectivity Selectivity refers to the degree to which the analytical method is free from interferences by other species in the sample matrix. This is generally not a major issue when testing wool. However, as indicated previously, it may be an issue for measurement of fibre diameter if extraneous synthetic fibres or very fine vegetable matter is present in the sample. 6 Development of wool measurement systems The use of objective measurements in wool processing goes back more than two centuries.
