Alpaca Fur:

The Alpaca fur used in Inkita products is ethically sourced. The Alpacas from which the skins are removed are not killed for their fur.

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 Inkita sources is mainly from baby Alpacas - or “cria” - which have died of natural causes.

The farmers do not kill their baby alpacas for their skins because it is not financially viable for them to do so. The skins are tiny. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
