This section shows wool being sorted on the skirting table. Skirting is a long process, and is the removal of any undesirable parts of the clippings. This process increases the quality of the product. Then foreign materials (like manure, sweat locks, seeds, thistles, insects, wool rot, burrs, etc.) in the fleeces are discarded,  Then fibres are classed according to fineness, length, and colour. Each wool product is made from a different type of fibre, and the sorter divides the fleece accordingly.
