Prices at today’s North Island wool sale held up on par with last week’s sale. Good colour fleece and shears tended to firm during the sale as these wool were sought after from the buyers. With the warm moist conditions across the North Island we are seeing colour getting worse especially in the fleece wool. Competition was well spread across the 13 buyers albeit on a small sale.
