A total of 1,409 bales were offered on AuctionsPlus with the usual buyers logging into the sale.
Wool brokers Moses and Son, and Elders offered wool from 50 different grower brands which were met with two distinct elements during the auction.
Shorter fleece wool, pieces, bellies, crutchings and locks drew buyer interest, while traditional fleece wool was met with lackluster demand.
Reports suggest knitwear wool is drawing demand at the retail end, whilst COVID is still impacting the sale of fleece wool.
