On a reasonable selection of superfine types in 16.5u and finer and a good selection of mostly lower types in 17.5u-21.5u, the fleece market continued to be under pressure with 16.5u and finer 10/20ac dearer and 17.0-20.0u 20/30ac dearer. Schneider and Fox proved to be the biggest competitors in 18.5u and finer.
The biggest move today was in 20.5-21.5u, up 80/100ac, pushed by Chinese interests.
Chinese types were 40/50ac dearer for 16.5u -20.0u.
20.5-21.5u were 80ac dearer.
Bkn and long Pcs are up to 80ac dearer for long, free lots and 20/30ac dearer for all others.
