Sheep farmers in Wales boosted by wool prices
2 December 2013 Last updated at 21:01 GMT
The price sheep farmers in Wales get for their wool has more than tripled over the last five years.
The British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB) said a shortage of fleeces coupled with strong demand from China had lead to an upturn in prices.
Some 35% of wool sold by the BWMB is now exported to China, double the percentage two years ago.
The price hike is seen as a welcome boost for sheep farms in Wales.
