USDA National Wool Review - 11 April 2016USDA National Wool Review - 11 April 2016

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was slow this week. There was 563,475 lbs of confirmed trades. Shearing is in full swing, but some strong snow storms in the mountain states did stop shearing for a couple days in the past couple weeks. Wool is still being collected and samples are being sent in for testing as wool is being marketed at this time. 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.
