Ivory Alpaca Hide
Medium Ivory Alpaca hide.
We're lucky to 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. Organically dry-tanned over a series of months, the hides aren’t subjected to the usual chemical softening agents and cleaners that cause pollution and some allergic reactions. The hides truly represent the best stewardship of American resources and traditions.
Unlike most of our Alpaca hides, this item has been shorn, so the fibers are slightly shorter. The single piece hide has been reinforced with stitching - please see photos. While it’s still superior to conventional Alpaca, these are uncharacteristic of our typical hides, and we’ve priced this item accordingly.
- Measures 38"l x 24"w in the centre.
- Unbacked hide with natural suede underside. Reinforced stitching on the underside.
- 2" long fibres, moderately dense coat.
- No lanolin, will not felt. Vaccuum, shake out, and brush to refresh the hide.
In stock, one available as shown.
