(Updated: 29 September 2022)
The Discover Natural Fibres Initiative will conduct a seminar on the margins of the International Cotton Conference Bremen focused on natural fibre quality standards and measurement.
Short presentations will be given on the parameters used in evaluating the quality of seven fibres (Alpaca, Cotton, Flax, Hemp, Jute, Sisal and Wool), the methods by which those parameters are measured, and typical price variances related to quality. The papers and presentations will be saved on the DNFI website for general reference.
The DNFI meeting will be held in a hybrid format in the rooms of the Bremen Cotton Exchange in Bremen and virtually.
