Can you tell if a pup will have fleece or wool hair?

We are getting a australian ld puppy this summer and I was just wondering if you can actually tell wether they will have fleece or wool hair when they are small....

I looked at some of the amazing and fun colour changes they go through and I noticed that a few people mentioned that their hair texture changes as well.. but does the texture stay with in the same fleece/wool classification throughout these changes?

Is it possible for doods to have more than one coat type on their body in patches? Our puppy has very silky curly fleece around her neck and chest but her butt and lower legs feels more like curly wool (much coarser), the rest of her body still has her puppy coat and feels like wavy fleece (much less curl). She is only 4 months old so I can imagine that she might fill out to one or the other? It is just so interesting...I am wondering which way she will go! She is an F1B.
