    Negative sentiment in China continues to have an adverse influence on the price of natural fibres. Despite overall low stock levels demand for young goat and adult mohair was subdued on today’s auction. A large percentage of adult mohair was taken in by the brokers at prices below their reserve levels in an effort to support the market. Kid mohair saw good competition and prices remained fully firmed.

    In comparison with the previous sale price movements were as follows:
    Kids                     Unchanged

    Fine Kids
    Young goats         12 % down
    Fine Adult             14% down
    Adult                    10% down

    The third Cape sale for the winter season will take place on the 25th September 2019 with approximately 170.000kg on offer.
