USDA National Wool Review

USDA National Wool Review - 13 July 2015USDA National Wool Review - 13 July 2015

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was at a standstill. There were no confirmed trades this week. Many are now starting to collect small pools that will trade later this fall as warehouses restock. After the big rallies in May and early June the market is now falling as demand is not as high as it was during that time. 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.
