No Alpacas that we source our materials from are killed for their fur. There is a prohibition in effect against killing alpacas for their hides: it is illegal, impractical, and immoral to do so. Our producers only use humanely acquired Alpaca hides to make our creations, sourced as a by-product. In Peru, Alpaca is a culinary delicacy, therefore their hides, like cow hides, are a by-product of the demand for alpaca meat. Alpacas are farmed and raised in a manner that encourages long life spans and are sheared annually. The longer they live, the more wool can be shorn from them. The majority of alpacas have died of natural causes, due to the rough living conditions and high altitude of the South American Andean Mountains. It would not be practical or ethical to kill Alpacas simply for their hides. The Alpaca industry is a very well regulated and animal friendly industry. Our producers use the hides of humanely acquired Alpaca fur to make our fur creations. Alpaca Plush closely follows all the laws that prohibit and regulate any mistreatment of alpacas.

Slight imperfections and differences in color and shade are part of the unique natural style of Alpaca fur. Each Alpaca fur product has a unique appearance, both in terms of color variation and physical qualities of the alpaca fur. Small differences in color shade and fiber length can occur, as only natural materials have been used. Alpaca fur can shed some wool in the beginning as a natural process. Please keep in mind that due to the nature of the fiber, all our items are unique and may vary slightly in appearance. These natural imperfections, color shade and shedding are not acceptable reasons for return. We are one of the oldest companies in our industry and the very best at producing luxury furs. We make every effort to ensure that colors are as close as possible to our color palette samples, there may be slight variations in color due to the color settings of your monitor or mobile device.
