In Cooma, inside  a vast shed is shown part of a unit that takes data about the fleece inside a bale of wool.  The bale moves on a conveyor and sensors are pushed into the bale. The marks of the 'stabbings' can be seen in a grid pattern on the bales afterwards.  From Sunhill and Gleneira sheep stations etc to China and to those who still buy wool.  Today is a suitable day for a wooley coat because winter returned for twenty four hours or so, staving off summer for a little while longer. Even snow falls were seen in less likely districts.  Conventional woolen clothing is usually too warm to wear in Newcastle as far as I'm concerned.
