PRE-ORDER NOTICE: THIS ITEM SHIPS MID-NOVEMBER
Handcrafted in Peru
Baby alpaca mittens lined with shearling - the perfect winter accessory! The fur is cruelty free, meaning the animals were not killed to collect and process their hides. Alpacas in Peru tended to by local farmers who shear them annually to collect their fleece as alpaca fiber is a valuable commodity to make yarn. Alpacas are worth more alive for this reason. However, due to harsh weather conditions in the region alpacas have a high mortality rate, which is how the skins are collected.
