USDA National Wool Review - 17 November 2015USDA National Wool Review - 17 November 2015

Domestic wool trading on a clean basis was moderately traded this week. There were 214,763 lbs of confirmed trades. Wool is still being collected from fall shorn lambs to try to market further down the road. There is some attempting to trade small amounts of wool at this time, and there has been success as most wools being traded are bringing close to 80 percent of Australia prices throughout the micron range. There is still some resistance due to the strong U.S. dollar. 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
