Crossbreeding with Dorset and Suffolk sheep increased the fiber fineness and reduced the percent medullation of the wool. However, staple length was also reduced.

Samples from the mid region of 65, 36, 14, 67, 31, and 23 sheep of the following breeds, respectively, were collected and analyzed for fiber diameter, percent medullation, and staple length: Malpura, Dorset X Malpura, Suffolk X Malpura, Sonadi, Dorset X Sonadi, and Suffolk X Sonadi.
