Another week of positive activity finishing the week unchanged across a wise range of micron categories. Chinese indent purchase remain consistent along with slow and steady demand out of Europe, India and Japan. As a result we are seeing low risk in price parameters as clearance rates remain higher than average and growers meet the current market levels, eliminating large stocks of wool on hold to be sold at a later date. We had an excellent opportunity this week to showcase some of our Authentico wool producers as we had some European visitors here to experience farm life and see the level of commitment to animal welfare, land management and social responsibility as well as experiencing the diversity of the landscape, the inconsistent weather and how that impacts wool production from different growing regions of Australia.

Little or no change is expected in the coming weeks as volume stabilizes and shearing patterns have returned to normal giving growers the flexibility to sell when they want. Slow and steady demand globally should also help keep the market stable in the coming weeks and months leading into the christmas recess.
