Under the Microscope March 2024

UtM Wool

Norwegian wool imaged using SEM

It's time for March's Under the Microscope winning suggestion which was...Wool suggested by Kristine Vike. Kristine not only suggested wool but also donated some to us all the way from Norway! For this suggestion, Lorelei Robertson imaged untreated and superwash-treated wools using the Thermo Fisher (FEI) XL30 see if there were any surface differences between the wool threads, and EWE better believe there were!
