Ivory Alpaca Hide
Medium-sized Ivory Huacaya Alpaca hide.
We come into a small batch of Alpaca hides each year, directly sourced from domestic farms. Raised with care for their fur to be spun into yarn, the animals have lived the duration of their natural lives, making for a semi-rare and precious American resource. It is as close to a sustainable fur as we have found.
Alpaca fibres are hollow, so the light reflects and bounces off the light colour wool in way unlike any other wool. Super warm, without being scratchy, these Alpaca hides are perfect for use as bedside floor coverings, or as an added warm layer on the sofa.
- Measures 41" x 30"w at widest points.
- Shorter fibres, roughly 2" long, good dense coat.
- A single, continuous hide with unbacked, natural suede underside.
