THE FIBER PRICE SHEET
Beginning today and on the last Tuesday of every month, WWD will publish a list of current and year-ago fiber prices. Prices listed reflect the cost of one pound of fiber.
The current cotton price is the December average on fiber being delivered to Memphis-area mills, according to the National Cotton Council. The wool price is based on the average of 13 different microns for the week ended Jan. 27, according to the International Wool Secretariat. Prices for man-made fibers are averages based on various company sources.
