Patni Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute Avikanagar-304 501 Rajasthan, India June 20, 1979 Dear Sir: Dual-purpose sheep like Malpura and Sonadi, reared in Rajasthan, produce coarse wool. Crossbreeding with Dorset and Suffolk sheep increased the fiber fineness and reduced the percent medullation of the wool. However, staple length was also reduced. This communication presents a correlation between these parameters. 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.
