Waar koop ek klein hoeveelhede wol vir spin?

Die NWKV het 'n navraag ontvang waar "rou" wol gekoop kan word om dit te spin as 'n stokperdjie.

Antwoord vanaf Dalena White, Cape Wools SA:

Moet verkieslik nie van "rou" wol af spin nie, want die wol moet eers gewas en gekam word.  Gekamde en gewaste wol word "tops" genoem.  Dan moet besluit word of die wol gebruik gaan word vir Felt of Gare (Yarn).  Die volgende word benodig:
* Felt - "non-treated tops"
* Gare - "Herco treated tops"

Opsies vir aankope van wol:

Starting a merino wool clothing brand

"I was hoping for some advice regarding production of merino wool in South Africa.  I know it is a big export for this, but I am interested in starting a Merino wool clothing brand here in SA, should there be any good, high quality manufacturers.  I would appreciate any help and tips with people to contact."

Answer from Dalena White, Cape Wools SA:
"We do export most of our wool in raw form and this is a huge source of income in foreign currency for our country.  The clothing industry has moved most of its manufacturing to the East for various reasons, and very little manufacturing still happens in SA.  I am not sure if you are looking for spun yarn, finished woven or knitted fabric or finished clothing goods, but I attach a list of people who still work with Merino wool on a smaller scale."  SA Merino Product Suppliers.
