Wool prices drifted downward at the final sale before the Easter recess in a sluggish market and the Cape Wools Merino Indicator shed 3.2% to close at R61,75/kg (clean).

Major buyers were Modiano SA (4 153 bales); Standard Wool SA (3 652 bales); Stucken (2 358 bales) and Lempriere SA (1 498 bales).

Average prices for good top-making (MF5), sound, long fleeces (less than 1% seed content) were as follows: 19 microns gained a marginal 0.4% to close at R70,54/kg; 19,5 microns were 5.5% cheaper at R65,05/ kg; 20 microns shed 3.4% to close at R62,80/kg; 20,5 microns were down 1.4% at R62,84/kg; 21 microns were 1.2% cheaper at R62,16/kg; 21,5 microns declined by 2% to close at R62,23/kg, and 22 microns shed 5,5% to R60,82/kg.
