A system of grading wool based on the superiority of wool from Merino sheep. Wool from the Merino was called blood wool; less good wool from other sheep was characterized as “½ blood,” “3/8 blood,” and so on down to “common,” and finally “braid.” For a comparison with wool grade by counts, see wool.
