BMM 2019 Mohair Fibre Collection

The BMM 2019 mohair fibre collection has been set for Friday 6th September and your mohair should be delivered to your collection point by the 1st September. Please contact your Collection Point regarding delivery.

Packing Your Mohair

As usual fleeces should be packed in BMM bags and the required information written clearly with a marker pen if possible. Bags should be numbered 1 of 5, 2 of 5, 3 of 5 etc starting with Kid fleece then Young Goat, Adult and Stains.

This may seem unnecessary but consistency really does help at the sorting stage. Please do remove any obvious contamination (straw, hay, thistles, gorse, etc). Please close your bags securely with string – NO baler twine or cables and fill every bag as full as possible with fleece from one age group.

Each bag should be marked with the same number that you used last year. If you do not have a number, can’t remember what number you used last year, or you want to join BMM and send your fleece this year please contact our Collection Coordinator: Dot Tyler via chridot@gmail.com.

BMM bags can be obtained from your Collection Point or by mail from Steve Whitley via socks@corrymoor.com.
