Stunning Alpaca fur multiway collar
Looking for glamour with versatility? These unbelievably soft and warm alpaca fur collars can be worn as a headband, or neck collar, or you can thread a scarf of your choice through the loops on the reverse to make a fur trimmed wrap. There is a vintage style covered hook and loop to fasten the collar at each end.
The Alpaca fur used in Samantha Holmes products is ethically sourced.
There is a tradition in Peru which has developed as a result of the death of weaker and very young Alpaca in the harsh Andean Winters. Alpaca roam freely in their natural terrain on the Altiplano of the Andes where temperatures can plummet in the Winter. The fur Samantha Holmes sources is mainly from Alpacas which have died of natural causes.
The farmers do not kill their alpacas for their skins because it is not financially viable for them to do so. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
Ethically sourced Alpaca fur.
To restore fur simply brush through dry shampoo using a wire brush. Do not allow fur to come into contact with water.
Measures approx 15x65cm with fur but please note that fur 'bushiness' does vary
