SOME FACTORS AFFECTING THE CLEAN PRICE OF GREASY WOOL

Using data from two representative wool-selling seasons, this paper presents an analysis of the influence of various wool characteristics on the clean price of greasy wool. The crimp frequency of staples is shown to be over three times more important than either staple length or colour; other characteristics, relative to these three, appear to be of no importance.
