The first mohair sale of the 2021 winter season took place in Port Elizabeth on 17 August 2021, with 88 723kg on offer, of which 99% was sold.

The first sale of a season is always mixed and difficult to quote due to the big variation in the composition of the offering from one season to another.

The competition between the mohair buyers was strong, with Responsible Mohair Standard (RMS)-certified mohair being the most attractive on offer. The average market indicator closed at R404,50/kg, which is 8% more (unchanged in dollar terms) than the last sale of the summer season. This can be attributed to the good competition and weaker South African currency.

A highest price of R830/kg was paid for a bale of 24 micron RMS-certified kid mohair. For the full report, click here. The second sale of the 2021 winter season will take place on 7 September 2021. – Press release, Mohair SA
