CAPE REPORT

At today’s cape mohair sale, the market opened fully firm compared to previous auction levels.

It closed with all types firm to 1-2% dearer, when considering that many lots were not the best style and yield the market would have to be considered more expensive still for all qualities.

Kid types firm unchanged

None the less fine kid qualities were 2% higher in price.

CAPE REPORT

13th August 2019
USD1.00 = Rand 15.2911

As is usual with the first sale of the season there was a smaller than usual amount of mohair available consisting mainly of less attractive more average qualities generally lacking in overall length.

We are quoting the market as generally 6/7% easier across all the types sold but prices were somewhat erratic due to the nature of the mixed offering.

The next sale will be held 3rd September 2019 when a more normal quantity of hair will be available with better lots expected.
