Wool is a natural fibre originated from animal origin which comes from sheep hair. Sheep hair is considered as a good source of textile fibre. Commercial sheep farming is very important for producing valuable wool to help develop wool-based textile in the country. Currently, Bangladesh is producing about 3,000 tons of wool from 3.4 million sheep that are being used in producing blanket, shawl, bed-sheet and other winter clothing. Wool fibre has a good moisture content and strength which puts wool fibre ahead of manmade fibre. Wool can be blended with cotton or jute as well to produce blended fibre. Furthermore, it does not feel damp when it is wet due its inherent physical property. It is evident that though Bangladesh does not have significant impact in sheep firming but still there are huge possibilities to produce wool fibres from local sheep. The study analyses the scope that local sheep could be a used as a source of fibre considering the properties of wool fibre.
