Market up behind fine fleece and skirtings

Driven mainly by solid increases in the finer Merino fleece and skirting types, the Australian wool market has managed to record another overall rise this week as the Eastern Market Indicator (EMI) gained three cents to close at 1,392c/kg.

Over 46,000 bales attracted strong widespread competition with only 10.5% of the offering failing to sell and individual Micron Price Guides (MPGs) for 18.0 micron and finer gaining 10 ‑ 71 cents nationally.

Movements in other microns were mixed, with Sydney recording increases on all Merino MPGs while in Melbourne and Fremantle, waning support of wool 19.0 micron and coarser as the sale progressed meant MPGs for 19.0 ‑ 21.0 in the South and West dropped by 5 ‑ 19 cents.

Skirtings followed a similar path to the fleece, with wools 18.5 micron and finer recording increases of 20 ‑ 30 cents, while broader types barely maintained their previous levels or were slightly cheaper.

The crossbred sector was the week’s poorest performer, with general losses of 5 ‑ 30 cents pushing MPGs for 26.0 ‑ 32.0 micron down by 5 ‑ 28 cents.

Next week sees an unusual selling pattern, with sales held on Tuesday and Thursday to accommodate the Australia Day Public Holiday on Wednesday, and 46,490 bales expected to be offered.
