Summary A recent model of Single Fibre Analyser 3001 (SIFAN3001) was firstly employed to obtain the single wool fibre diameter profiles (SfFDP’s) at multiple orientations. The results showed that using SIFAN3001 to measure fibre diameter at four orientations for 50 single fibres randomly sub-sampled from each mid-side sample can produce average fibre diameter profiles (ASfFDP’s) of fibres within staples. Within the testing regime used, the precision estimates for the total samples were ±1.3µm for mean fibre diameter of staples and ±1.4µm for average fibre diameter of the ASfFDP’s at each scanned step in the diameter profile. The mean diameter ratio (ellipticity) obtained from the four orientations was 1.08±0.01, confirming that the Merino wool fibres under review were elliptical rather than circular. The elliptical morphology of wool fibres and the precision of fibre diameter measurement at each point along a fibre will be considered in the development of a mechanical model of Staple Strength testing.
