USDA National Wool Review - 20 July 2015USDA National Wool Review - 20 July 2015

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was very slow this week. There were 66,000 lbs of confirmed trades. Most are at a point where they are just collecting pools that were sheared late to store until the fall as warehouses restock. 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.
