The market held on to its gains of last week with the prices of most types finishing relatively unchanged. Cape Wool's Merino indicator closed the day a marginal 0,4% down at R64,36/kg (clean).

Average price movements for AWEX-type fleeces, MF4 and MF5 of 70 and 80 mm were as follows: 19 microns was unchanged at R84,10 /kg; 20 microns were down 0,8% at R72,93/kg; 21 microns were also 0,8% cheaper at R67,10 /kg; 22 microns dropped 2,9% at R62,35/kg, 23 microns were a marginal 0,4% dearer at R61,55/kg, but there no quotes for 24 microns and 25 microns.
