Abstract: Fibre and fabric characteristics of Rambouillet and Merino crosses with Chokla and Nali, Chokla and Corriedale sheep wools are reported. Crossbreeding improves the fiber fineness and reduces the percentage medullation and length. The reduction in fibre length increases the noil extraction. Fabrics produced from crossbred sheep wools are better in terms of feel, visual appeal, etc. The presence of hetero and hairy fibres in halfbred wools imparts a rough feel and uneven surface appearance due to differential dye uptake.
