New Zealand Wool Services International Limited’s Marketing Executive, Mr Paul Steel reports that the South Island auction this week comprised 10,153 bales of which 75 percent sold with the bulk of the offering being mainly Coarse Crossbred Fleece and Second Shear body wools. Despite the declining NZD/USD dollar rate, prices were generally down overall.
Exporters appear to have covered their short term position for the moment.
Mr Steel advises that compared to the South Island sale on the 7th Fleece 24.5 to 25.5 micron were 2 percent cheaper, 26 to 27.5 microns gained 1 percent. 28 to 29.5 micron were 1 percent cheaper.
Compared to the North Island sale on 14th good and average colour remained firm. 34 to 36 micron good colour were generally 2.5 percent cheaper.
Fine Crossbred Early Shorn and Second Shear 33 to 35 micron 3 to 5 inch and 2 to 4 inch were back 1 percent.
Coarse Crossbred Fleece 36 micron and coarser 4 to 6 inch good colour was 1 percent cheaper, while average and poor colour were 2 percent cheaper.
Crossbred Oddments, combing and carding remained firm.
Competition continued to be dominated by Chinese activity.
Next sale on 28th August comprises approximately 7,400 bales from the South Island.
