Fibre Direct is designed to give you a simple and direct approach to selling your wool, that can generate a wealth of savings, both ‘in shed’ and in testing costs. By significantly reducing labour costs and testing in bigger lots.
It works like this:
Sheep are shorn in mobs, and each mob is given a unique brand number
The brand, bale number and the description (FLPS) are placed on the top of the bale
Fleece do not need skirting and are pressed with pieces attached. Any cast fleece, eg. Cott, colour, tender, should be removed
Bellies and locks are pressed separately
Once in store, all lots are tested and a price - sourced directly from overseas mills - is offered

Environmentally Sustainable Wool
We understand that the global demand for organic and low-chemical residue fabrics is increasing, and that many wool buyers require their suppliers to comply with the requirements of the environmentally sustainable wool market. As part of our mission to be proactive in recognising environmentally sustainable practices, we offer supply arrangements for complying growers to not only deliver on the consumer expectation, but make the most out of their sustainable wool clip.
