‘I believe Russia should be seen as a major opportunity for wool buyers’, says Mr Sergey Puzanov Director of Slavyane Wool Company. Sergey Puzanov, speaking from his office in Beijing, comments that ‘for our company, China has become a predominant market. The majority of our Russian wool is destined for processing mills in China.’

Some regional areas in Russia, particularly in the Caucuses have good merino wool. It is estimated that there are approximately 20 million sheep in Russia and around 60% of these are merino. ‘With spinners under pressure from higher wool prices Russian merino wool provides a great opportunity for blending or for its own’, he says.

‘As Russian wool offers opportunities for the international processing industry, Russia, as a country, also offers a great domestic consumer market for the wool industry. ‘We have a population of more than 142 million, a growing middle class with disposable income, and a very cold winter season. Russia promises opportunities for wool products at retail, and for international buyers of raw wool we are finding our footing again.

30 years ago Russia was the world’s largest export market for wool, importing and processing over 160 million kilograms to clothe the military and communist party. It is now rebuilding the industry after its near collapse with the fall of the Soviet Union. As a free-market economy it is refocusing to develop better farm practices, better testing procedures and promoting understand about the benefits of wool to appeal to the high-quality apparel sector. Russia is now a member state of the International Wool Trade Organisation.

The wool production sector in Russian today consists of individual farmers running 300 – 1000 sheep, or farming conglomerate / units with 25,000 – 30,000 sheep. In 1998 there were 12.6 million sheep in Russia, by 2010 there were 20 million. Today only 60% of Russian sheep are merino breeds and as in most other countries dual purpose sheep is a tendency for farmers. The best sheep in Russia are grown in the Stavropol Region.

 

Slavyane Wool Company is the biggest exporter of Russian wool and purchases up to 2,000 tons of greasy wool and up to 300 tons of feather and down material annually. It can supply merino wool, semi-fine wool, semi coarse wool, wool tow, wool clip (hide-shorn), and scoured wool. The company has expanded its product list and now offers wool top through its offices in Mumbai, Biella and Beijing.
