The fur used for these alpaca Bear is all natural and dye free, often white is the softest of all alpaca because of the lack of pigment. These alpaca- Bear meet or exceed all US and independent state requirements for plush figures. This assures you that you're purchasing the highest quality bear available. No two alpaca - llama are ever the same because they are hand sewn from natural alpaca. Your alpaca will be similar in size and shade to the one shown. Color shades and size as well as fur length will vary from one alpaca to another. A byproduct of alpaca farming, alpacas are never harmed to obtain their fur. To clean, wipe with a damp cloth and allow to air dry, then brush gently. Do not submerge in water. Alpaca fur does not absorb water and has no lanolin or grease that can hold allergens. If submerged, water will penetrate into the body of the alpaca and will damage it. With care, this alpaca will be a wonderful friend, to be cherished for years.
