Summary of wool market overview for August / September 2013

Wool intake is steadily increasing together with the quality of wool also improving, prospects remain positive. A decent cold winter in the northern hemisphere also goes a long way to cleaning out retailers stocks this should give retailers confidence to restock. A relative stable currency market with no nasty surprises from world economies, markets should remain at these levels for the next few months. This will give spinners the opportunity to get accustomed to the new price levels, rethink their position, and commit themselves to production.-(Johan Louw Manager : CMW Wool-marketing).

“Fashion starts with the fabric”, “wool is the best fibre”, and “we must get its message out to the world,” Vogue editor Kirstie Clements. “Wool is a pleasure to work with. I love the light bouncy handle to suiting wool and it sews and presses so perfectly. There is no better fibre to tailor with.” Sydney designer Dion Lee and winner of the 2010 L’Oreal Melbourne fashion festival (LMFF) of the Australian Wool Innovation.
