    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These specifications cover the classification, by fineness grade, of wool or mohair that is in the grease, pulled, washed, or scoured state, or in the form of card sliver.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, these specifications were withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These specifications cover the classification, by fineness grade, of wool or mohair that is in the grease, pulled, washed, or scoured state, or in the form of card sliver.

    1.2 These specifications are applicable also to assignment of grade for wool or mohair in spun materials or products processed beyond carding on the woolen system but not on the worsted system which involves a combing process.

    Note 1—For fineness specifications for wool top, mohair top, and alpaca, refer to Specifications D3992 and D2252.
