Historically, NC wool producers have pooled their wool to put together quantities large enough to be able to sell on the national market.
How we handle and pack wool does play a big role in the final prices we receive. Wool needs to be full staple length, needs to be packed dry in the proper bags, and well labeled. The current standard for bags are large clear plastic wool bags. You can pick up these bags at the wool pools.
DO NOT use plastic feed sacks or the poly tarps. These have plastic fibers that contaminate wool and will result in rejection of the entire lot.
The primary commercial market for wool is for white wool, so it really pays to keep colored wool separate from clear wool
If you think you have fine wool, make sure you label it.
