Major buyers were Modiano SA (2 575 bales), Standard Wool SA (1 719 bales),  Lempriere SA (1 403 bales) and Stucken & Co (1 240 bales).
 
The average clean prices for the different categories good top-making (MF5), long fleeces were as follows: 18 microns were down 2.9% at R99,73/kg, 18,5 microns gained 0,5% to R97,60/kg, 19 microns were up 0.3% at R96,57/kg, 19,5 microns increased by 0,3% to R94,75/kg, 20 microns were 0,7% cheaper at R92,62/kg, 20,5 microns were down 1.8% at R91,05/kg, 21 microns shed 0.6% at R90,58/kg, 21,5 microns were 1.4% cheaper at R89,61/kg and 22 microns were down 1.5% to close at R89,58/kg.
