Abstract


The purpose of these researches was to analyze the quantitative and qualitative parameters of wool obtained from the Palas sheep population with high prolificacy and to assess the processing availabilities of these fibres type. Average values recorded for the main wool traits ranged between the following limits: wool production 2.86 ÷ 4.72 kilos; fibres fineness 27.28 ÷ 29.32 microns; variability of fineness ( CV) 26.88 ÷ 29.94 %; staple length 9.77 ÷ 14.23 cm, variability of length ( CV) 18.01 ÷ 22.06 % ; scouring yield 54.05 ÷ 61.44 % and the variability of yield 8.35 ÷ 14.78 %. . This wool has a technological value similar to that obtained from the sheep breed with medium fineness wool (Tigaie, Spanca ).
