In 24 girls with atopic dermatitis and a history of irritation to wool, more intense itching was provoked on normal skin on the abdomen by a material with coarse wool fibres (36μm) than with thinner fibres (20 μm). The probability of the materials causing itching could be predicted by the girls by handling the materials.
