First auction day of the 2017/18 season saw a reasonable selection of best and best/good superfine types but mainly good TM, tender, high VM and Chinese types. The fleece market began cheaper, especially for the large selection of high VM, but finished the day generally unchanged. Skirtings were firm for light VM types and irregular but generally unchanged for C and D fault types.
