How do we get our Alpaca and Llama skins
Now, the real question: Do we kill Alpacas for their skins? The answer: No,
never! No only every associated alpaca farmer would consider this a capital
crime, but it would not make economical sense either. Every Alpaca will render
more monetary benefit as a fiber provider, just in one single year! Then, you
must take into account that Alpacas reproduce every year, faithfully, producing
very valuable new members to any Alpaca farm. It would not make a lot of sense
to kill them for slippers!
Then, where do we obtain the pelts? Unfortunately, some members of an alpaca
“manada” die naturally (mostly due to old age). Some die after birthing. These
sad events due leaves us with few, TREASURED skins for handcrafting.
A note about slippers' sizing
Our slippers are crafted in American sizes, medium width (see our
slipper size table
Since our slippers are crafted with natural hides, they will mold to your feet.
Do not worry is you have a wider than a medium foot!
