The wool market continues to trade within a healthy range 1280/1320 EMI which seems sustainable with current demand and currency levels. China has been a revelation during this period with local processing demand assisting despite congestion in the containerization and shipping space where significant delays are being experienced. NM has clearly become the base standard for many international markets with RWS now the new frontier in terms of significant price benefits for wool growers.
