To investigate spin susceptibility in a superconducting (SC) state, we measured the $$^{125}$$Te-NMR Knight shifts at magnetic fields ($$H$$) up to 6.5 T along the $$b$$ and $$c$$ axes of single-crystal UTe$$_2$$, a promising candidate for a spin-triplet superconductor. In the SC state, the Knight shifts along the $$b$$ and $$c$$ axes ($$K_{rm b}$$ and $$K_{rm c}$$, respectively) decreased slightly, and the decrease in $$K_{rm b}$$ was almost constant up to 6.5 T. The reduction in $$K_{rm c}$$ decreased with increasing $$H$$, and $$K_{rm c}$$ was unchanged through the SC transition temperature at 5.5 T, excluding the possibility of spin-singlet pairing. Our results indicate that spin susceptibilities along the $$b$$ and $$c$$ axes slightly decrease in the SC state in low $$H$$, and the $$H$$ response of SC spin susceptibility is anisotropic on the $$bc$$ plane.
