>>> MOHAIR "FUR" Shoulder Drape
   

FUR WITHOUT GUILT

This sensational design by Megan Cleland provides us girls yearning for luxury and sumptuous fur like qualities, with a guilt free option.

Featuring mohair curls which have been shorn from Angora goats in the usual pain free manner, leaving them with their skin in tact, free to roam and grow another coat.The curls are then knitted into a fabric using a pure wool yarn.

Wonderfully warm , all natural AND guilt free !

Special thanks to our lovely model Liz.

Available in natural pearly white or

hand dyed to order.

Consider either natural hair/fur shades or

a shade to match your favoured outfit.
