Weekly Wool Prices

Week Ending 5 June (Week 49)

5 June 2015

The Australian wool auction market continued to roar this week, in a sale which saw many wool types and descriptions set record levels or extend freshly set highest ever levels in Australian dollar terms.

In general, all Merino types broader than 22 micron, all crossbred types and most of the carding sector sold to new highs. The strength of the competition caused a further 61ac/clean kg rise in the EMI (Eastern Market Indicator), which concluded the week at 1373ac/clean kg, a leap of 4.65%.

On the year-on-year basis, the market now sits at levels 32% better, or a 336ac/clean kg increase.
