The wool market was stronger at this week’s sale and the Cape Wools Merino indicator gained 3.6% on last week to close at R114.43 /kg (clean).

The demand from China, weaker rand and good competition for top quality wool at this week’s sale assisted in pushing the prices higher.

Wool prices rose across the board with the finer types posting the greatest increases.

The average clean prices for the different categories good top-making (MF5), long fleeces were as follows: 18 microns were up 5.6% at R125,41/kg, 18,5 microns strengthened by 5.2% to R123,16/kg, 19 microns gained 3.8% to R121,00/kg, 19,5 microns rose 3.4% to close at R118,43/kg , 20 microns were up 2.7% to close at R115,49/kg, 21 microns gained 3.5% at R115,14/kg, 21,5 microns were 4.4% dearer at R115,19/kg and 22 microns were up 1% to close at R111,29/kg.
