Many years ago while traveling throughout Oaxaca, Mexico, we had the privilege of assisting in the making of mohair and yak twisted mecates. Sadly, the old mill is now abandoned, yet, by some fortunate chance we were able to acquire a small collection. These mecates are unique and will never be duplicated again. We will be listing them one by one.
This listing is for one 22', 1/2" twisted 6 strand 100% mohair mecate in black and a lovely pewter grey. These colors are not the same as our mohair selection but do blend nicely with our offering if you are trying to match a cinch or breast collar from our colors.
Honest review from a mecate user and aficionado: This mohair mecate has exceptional life, weight, and drape and feels great in the hand. It's not too bulky for small hands nor does it lack substance. I would use this mecate on my hackamore horse with confidence.
Please be aware that twisted mohair has a slightly different feel to it than hand-braided mohair mecates. You will feel the lay of the twist like a twisted hair mecate.
