The final mohair sale of the 2021 summer season took place in Port Elizabeth this week. In total 110 260 kg was on offer, of which 92% was sold. The offering consisted of mixed quality with good quality individual clips.
The rand once again traded stronger than the previous sale, which put pressure on the mohair market. As a result, the average market indicator decreased by 5% (decreased by 3% in dollar terms) from the previous sale to close on R373,50/kg. A highest price of R900/kg was paid for a bale of 24 micron super style kid mohair.
The average mohair price for the entire 2021 summer season is R377,76/kg, which is 54% more than the average mohair price of the 2020 summer season. It was clear that the mohair certified under the Responsible Mohair Standard (RMS) was the most sought-after mohair fibre. Consequently, the buying houses competed actively for this segment of the market.
The first sale of the 2021 winter season will take place on 17 August 2021. – Press release, Mohair SA
