In countries where the fleece traditionally has been shipped, the fleeces are packed into bales — which load better in the ship holds for export abroad. Depending on the country, the bales weigh different amounts. Australian and New Zealand bales weigh 150 kg (330 lb), whereas South American bales weight approximately 1,000 lb (454 kg)

Cotton also is shipped in 500-pound bales
