Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was moderate this week. There were 481,720 lbs of confirmed trades. Demand was good. The latest rally in the wool market has brought great interest and has made it easier for growers to make trades at levels where they are comfortable to move their wool. Currency and optimism overseas have been the biggest contributors to the rally. 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.
