The focus shifted to the finer micron types this week and in particular the shorter knitting types. Tender fleece, prems and good pieces 17.5 micron and finer all performed particularly well, dominated by Chinese interests. The market was expected to settle a little this week with reports of not a lot of interest around the closing levels from last week. However the market performed better than most would have predicted, particularly the finer types.
