After a five-week rally‚ which saw the Cape Wools Merino indicator gaining 17%‚ wool prices softened at this week’s sale with the indicator shedding 3.9% to R100.29 a kg‚ Cape Wools said on Wednesday.

“There were concerns that the huge hike in prices was unsustainable since it was not being driven by increased consumer demand‚” said Cape Wools.
