Prices at the North Island wool sale on Thursday resisted the full effects of a negative exchange rate.
Prices for some wool types increased, despite the New Zealand dollar strengthening by more than 1% against the main trading currencies since last week's sale.
New Zealand Wool Services International reports that average style and better coarse carpet type fleece wool ranged from firm to 2% down, but poorer styles strengthened by up to 1%.
Some offerings of longer length second shear increased by up to 5%. But shorter length shears fell by 4% to 5%.
However, prices for most shear types are still well below what was paid at the last South Island auction last week.
Some 70% of the 16,000 bales offered for auction, were sold.
Next week's South Island auction will include a high volume of wools passed in at previous auctions.
