Genetic parameters of loose wool bulk were estimated by half- sib correlations for Romney ewe and ram hogget fleeces sampled at Tokanui Research Station, Romney and Perendale ewe hogget fleeces sampled at Rotomahana Research Station and Perendale ewe hogget fleeces sampled from 5 industry flocks. Daughter-dam analyses were used to estimate similar parameters for Perendale ewe fleeces sampled at Whatawhata Hill Country Research Station. Heritability estimates for loose wool bulk were 0.34
