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.
