On a reasonable selection of best and best/good superfine types and a good selection of fine and medium types, the fleece market opened very firm to dearer for all descriptions with the poorer types most affected. Best strength/style 17.0-18.0u types were particularly well sought after by NEW, FOX and AME, but supported by Lempriere and Techwool.
Skirtings were generally 10/15ac dearer
