In the first half of this year, wool imports of China touched 164,250 tons, representing a year on year decline of 8.1 percent over the corresponding period last year.

Of these, raw wool imports accounted for 125,900 tons, down 12.25 percent, clean wool marked 23,800 tons, an increase of 20.49 percent, wool tops scored 9,114 tons, down 8.9 percent while carbonized wool commanded 3,236 tons, sliding by 26.02 percent.
