Welcome to Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing

Kim Cartwright Owner/Operator


Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing is a privately owned and operated wool, alpaca and mohair testing business, based in the Crookwell area, NSW, Australia. Established for 9 years, we have gained a reputation for fast accurate testing of mid-side samples. We currently service a large number of major studs and commercial growers throughout Australia. Also for the last 3 years we have tested for alpaca breeders in NZ, Europe and North America.

Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing was one of the first wool testing houses to be accredited by AWEX, through their On Farm Fibre Measurement (OFFM-QA) Quality Assurance program in 2005. There is a yearly audit by AWEX to make sure high standards and accuracy are maintained.

Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing uses the OFDA 2000 technology. It is the only fibre measurement technology that measures the whole length of staple and can supply the staple summary graph.

We offer a variety of wool, alpaca and mohair fibre testing services and have the flexibility to meet any of our clients needs (7 days a week if required). Whilst wool testing is our main area of business, Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing also tests for many alpaca and mohair clients.


Southern Tablelands Fibre Testing have developed a reputation for providing quality controlled on-farm and in-house fibre testing combined with professional and practical support to clients.

We aim to deliver our personalised service at a competitive price, within the shortest time frame available without compromising quality at any stage.
