Wool prices have taken a knock from a higher dollar at this week's combined North and South Island sales.
An increase in the amount of wool on offer at a time when international demand is quiet also contributed to prices easing.
More than 18,000 bales were auctioned and 88% were sold.
Wool exporter New Zealand Wool Services International says cross-bred wool prices fell by up to 4%.
Mid-micron and end of season lambs' wool were also slightly cheaper.
