A falling New Zealand dollar contributed to a further improvement in wool prices at this week's combined North and South Island wool sale.
Wool Services International says mid micron fleece was 1% - 4% dearer and finer crossbred wools fetched between 1% - 3% more.
Course fleece and shears were firm to slightly dearer, while long oddments were up to 1% stronger.
The shorter wool types also attracted good support, with prices lifting between 2% - 3% percent.
More than 85% of the 8000 bales on offer, sold.
