Prices continued their upward trend for most types today. Crossbred Hogget wool is coming forward, and good competition was evident for these types. The poorer coloured fleece has also seen some strong competition in recent weeks.
Mid Micron types continue to be very erratic, with the Hogget wools 23.0 to 24.0 micron struggling to find a level today. Merino types were also erratic, which lined up with the
sales in Australia over recent weeks.
News that the North Island wool scour has a definite date for operation has reduced some uncertainty for scouring wool, although there is still a backlog and no clear indication on when
wool can be scoured.
