On a small selection of best and best/good superfine types and a good selection of fine and medium types, the fleece market closed fully firm for 19.5u and finer but 20/30ac cheaper for broader types. Modiano, Tianyu and Chinatex all very keen on best/good style 16.3 – 18.0u types which pushed prices very close to prices for best topmaking types. Chinese types 16.5u – 18.5u were generally 10ac dearer.
Skirtings were generally firm except 17.5u and finer which was 15-25ac dearer (poor types and high VM most affected).
