Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was at a moderate this week. There were 519,214 lbs of confirmed trades. Demand is still good. There was high demand for 22 micron wool this week which carried more value than some finer micron wools. Interest in selling wool has still been high. Most of the shearing is coming to close and the majorities of the big wool runs are slowing down. Many will now start to collect small pools that will trade closer to fall as warehouses restock.
