More on “fine, medium and broad” handles for merino micron categories.

Last week Mecardo published an article on the subjective shorthand labels for micron categories (“fine, medium and broad”) in relation to potential confusion when hedging. A reader from Uruguay has raised a related issue about the range of different subjective labels applied to merino micron categories and the potential for confusion. This article takes a look at this issue.

A review of the merino prem wool supply.

Shearing at shorter time intervals (prem shearing) is perceived to be increasing. The implication is that the relative prices for shorter combing length fleece wool will come under pressure from increased supply. This article takes a look at the supply of shorter merino fleece during the past couple of decades as a check on this general perception.

What does “fine, medium and broad” wool mean?

Terminology in the wool market can be confusing, and one of the more uncertain descriptions used is “fine, medium and broad”. In the early days of staple measurement, broad wool was called strong wool, which has petered out as “strong” became synonymous with high staple strength. This article takes a look at the “fine, medium and broad” terminology and how it can be misleading in terms of hedging.

Merino price projections.

Last week Mecardo looked at the strong correlation between the diminishing ratio of merino wool volumes to cotton in recent decades and the increasing price ratio of merino to cotton. A reader has asked a question about current prices in terms of how much is a cyclical peak, and how much of recent prices are structural. This article takes a look at this question.

This article takes another look at the Australian flock size with some modelled projections for the next couple of seasons.

Low merino supply helps support high price ratio.

In January, Mecardo looked at the relationship between supply and the 21 MPG price ratio to cotton. Given the continued strength of merino prices since then, we have gone back and looked at the season to date price and volume ratios for merino wool in total compared to cotton.
