AFD = Average Fiber Diameter- Average diameter of all fibers tested in a sample. Shetland should have AFD <32

SD = Standard Deviation - A measure of the variation in the fibers tested in a sample. Shetlands should have SD's < 5.5. High numbers indicate larger variability in fiber diameter, which will have a negative impact on handle.

CV = Coefficient of Variation - A calculation showing the SD as a % of the AFD. Shetlands should have CV's around 20% or lower. Higher numbers indicate larger variability in the fiber diameters.

SF = Spinning Fineness - A calculation developed by wool graders to help group fleeces by similar handle. A better gage of fineness than AFD alone. The best Shetland fleeces will have SF's lower than their AFD

In general, 30 microns is the maximum for next to skin wearability.
