On my prs the sound can be a bit wooly for want of a better word. I don't want to mess up my sound and risk it getting worse but when I hit a note particularly on the 6th E string it sounds very wooly, can someone offer advice as to whther raising the hight of the pickups would help this.

Thanks

Just do it.

Pickup heights and pole piece heights are adjustable for a reason

I'm not quite sure what "wooly" means though.

I'm assuming by wooly you mean muddled and somewhat distorted. It's because the pickup is too close to the string. Slant it so that it's slightly lower under the thicker three strings, and leave it as is on the high end strings. It'll take care of your problem. Peace.

It's like that because the closer the magentic field of the pickups are to the strings, the louder it becomes, and eventually it becomes distorted and muddy, often mimicking the sound of clipping. Lower it, you'll be fine.

Lower the middle polepieces?

lower the poles. if that doesn't work, the pickups might be messed up. have it checked if dropping them doesn't work.
