Merino cardings leading the way?

The Merino Cardings indicator, which is made up of crutchings and locks prices, has fallen by 38% since last August (41% in US dollar terms). This is a solid down cycle, and with stocks reported to be held overseas, a recovery in price does not seem likely in the near to medium term. This article looks at what this may mean for short length Merino fleece prices.

Sub-17 micron merino prices

After looking at broad crossbred prices earlier this week it seemed sensible to swing to the other extreme and look at merino prices for micron categories finer than the AWEX MPGs cover.

Wool yield lifting

Greasy wool supplies tend to be discussed from the farmer side of the market in total volume terms, which ignores the various quality requirements placed for wool consignments. Sometimes it can be a case of “wool, wool everywhere but not a lot to fit” to poorly paraphrase The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. The most recent quality issue has been yield, which this article looks at.
