USDA National Wool Review - 26 May 2015USDA National Wool Review - 26 May 2015

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was slow this week. There were 236,000 lbs of confirmed trades. Demand was good. Interest in selling wool has still been high. Rainstorms have slowed many of the shearing crews still out in the field and they are working as hard as they can between storms to finish shearing. Currency and is the only real struggle point at this time as the U.S. dollar remains high. 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.
