Wool prices have crept up again at this week's wool sale, on the back of a slightly weaker New Zealand dollar.
The sale of South Island wool was smaller than last week's, with only 7000 bales up for auction.
About 90% of that was sold.
The exporter, Wool Services International, says prices were up across the board, driven by steady Chinese demand.
Fine cross bred fleece and shears were up to 1% dearer.
Coarse cross bred fleece was also up 1%.
Fine lambs wool was up to 2% stronger, and the coarser types rose by 3%.
Oddments were also up to 3% firmer.
Next week's sale will be a larger one, with about 23,000 bales on offer from across the country.
