A large offering of lambs wool and autumn shorn wool attracted good competition at the Christchurch wool sale yesterday.

Good and poorer style crossbred fleece was 1 per cent to 3 per cent dearer from the last sale on March 27, and hogget and finer ewe fleece (34 micron and finer) was generally unchanged.

Lamb's wool longer than 75 millimetres rose up to 3 per cent, and shorter lots were 2 per cent to 3 per cent cheaper. Second-shear fleece was 1 per cent to 2 per cent cheaper and oddments were generally unchanged.

Elders Primary Wool supply manager Roger Fuller said wool lots had been prepared to a good standard. PGG Wrightson Wool South Island sales manager Dave Burridge said the strong dollar continued to place pressure on wool exporters.

A small offering of merino fleece met with keen interest.
