    just came across this whilst needing to change to a different light fitting.

    Gave up trying to what is what, and stripped it right back to work it all out, it was incoming feed, two out going feeds and a second switched feed to a wall light.

    The “Loop” was not Perm Live, this was in a seperate choc block behind the fitting!!

    Im told the builders electrician wired it a few years ago, im not so sure.....

    I reckon it's wool (as in jumpers - sorry) been used to identify those conductors. Wonder if it's that fire rated stuff? o_O
