Stunning furry cuffs, handmade with real Alpaca Fur. Lined with knitted baby alpaca. Adjustable with invisible elastic inside. Spruce up an old pair of leather gloves, or wear at the end of sleeves. 100% natural colours therefore please allow for a natural variation in colour and texture.
The Alpaca fur used in Samantha Holmes products is ethically sourced from herd wastage.
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 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.
