South Is­land wool sale


PRICES con­tin­ued to fluc­tu­ate for most styles at this week’s South Is­land wool sale in Christchurch, which had one of the largest of­fer­ings of the sea­son.

Af­ter tak­ing a cor­rec­tion from the last sale, cross­bred wools had re­bounded to where they were two sales ago, PGG Wright­son Wool’s South Is­land sales team said.

Mid­mi­cron styles had also stead­ied af­ter show­ing vul­ner­a­bil­ity in re­cent sales and, while they might have come off a lofty height, re­turns to grow­ers re­mained at gen­er­a­tional highs.

An ex­cel­lent of­fer­ing of merino wool at­tracted strong in­ter­est from buy­ers, but price lev­els re­flected the cor­rec­tion shown in re­cent sales in Aus­tralia, es­pe­cially for finer wools.

Roger Fuller, of CP Wool, said cross­bred wools show­ing dis­coloura­tion were con­sid­er­ably cheaper, which was con­cern­ing, lead­ing into sum­mer shear­ing.
