Merino fleece staple length P&Ds

Since 2013, the Merino Cardings indicator (locks and crutchings) has spent nearly all the time above 70% of the Eastern Market Indicator (EMI), a level exceeded only in 1987 and 2010 between 1981 and 2013.

In light of this fall, this article looks at the effect of staple length on Merino fleece price in October.
