Wool should regain market from synthetic fibre - Gattung

If wool needs to recover its lost glory, then the textile industry has to regain the market that it has lost to synthetic fibres, informed Wool Partners International Chairperson, Theresa Gattung, to the wool industry owners.

She passed this statement, while addressing a textile industry conference in Wellington. She further added that, despite the reduction in the number of sheep, New Zealand was still able to manufacture 30 percent of strong wool, utilised in carpets, and continues to hold the repute of manufacturing the best wool in the world, said Gattung.

Gattung further added that, synthetic fibres had definitely over powered wool, for instance, nylon fibres succeeded in the market as they were priced at a lower rate. However, now the same nylon fibre was no longer considered superior and is being traded at the same cost as wool.

More so, a hoarding in Atlanta also displayed an image that was the same for wool industry, a baby with a lamb, said Gattung, thus indicating that, the synthetics industry was also making use of the wool industry's imagery.

In addition, Gattung informed that, the synthetics industry is also a leader for maintaining international standards for carpet production and thus, the wool industry has to regain that disparity as well.
