USDA National Wool Review
23 November 2015
Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was at a standstill this week. There were no confirmed trades. Wool is still being collected from fall shorn lambs to try to market further down the road. There is some attempting to trade small amounts of wool at this time, but many are opting to hold onto their wool as there is optimism that there will be another strong rally in the spring. There is currently some resistance due to the strong U.S. dollar. Domestic clean wool and confirmed trades are reported on a weighted average basis. Prices reflect trades FOB warehouse in original bag or square pack, bellies out, some graded, and 76 mm or longer. No allowance made for coring, freight or handling fees at the warehouse level to reflect net grower prices (*) indicates new prices this week. (NA) represents microns not normally available in this region. Wools shorter than 75 mm typically discounted .10-.20 clean. Classed and skirted wools usually trade at a .10-.20 premium to original bag prices.
