Wool prices hold firm

2:29 pm on 9 August 2013

Wool prices held firm at this week's sale of South Island wool.

Most of the 6000 bales on offer were crossbred fleece and early short second shear.

Longer-length cross wools were 2% to 3% dearer.

But other prices held at last week's level when crossbred wool prices eased back a little.
