Factors affecting consumption of wool textiles in New Zealand
This paper is concerned with the results of some research on the factors affecting the consumption of wool textiles in major wool consuming countries, commencing with New Zealand. Such a study, while of national importance, in a country as dependent on wool as New Zealand, has special significance at the present time because of the downward trend in consumption which has developed in recent years. The results form the substance of this publication.
