Toft Alpaca Fur Pom Pom

The ultimate fluffy accessory adds luxury to ANYTHING, making it that little bit more special. Each pom pom has a length of string attached to the centre, making them easily attachable to hats and scarves.

NOTE: Alpacas are not killed for their fur. The alpaca fur products stocked by TOFT are made from the skins of young alpacas which have unfortunately died through natural causes in Peru. Alpaca pelts are purchased from indigenous farmers and used to create items such as these alpaca fur pompoms. We feel that alpaca fur, when sourced in this way, is an ethical fur product as the alpacas are not harmed to any demand and the farmer gets a monetary return on the loss of income cause by the death of one of the herd.

Description

TOFT began in September 2006 at the dawn of the handmade, do-it-yourself craft resurgence in Britain. Toft is the name of the small Warwickshire hamlet in which the business operates and from which the brand takes its name. Since 2006 the brand has organically grown from small family beginning to become a dynamic player in the contemporary craft and lifestyle market.

The business came about as a development of Creative Director Kerry Lord’s family alpaca farm at Toft Manor, which is now the base for the whole company. Rob and Shirley Bettinson, Kerry’s parents, bought alpacas in 1997 when the first alpacas came to the UK. Rob and Shirley continue to run Toft Alpaca Stud – a busy livestock business specialising in breeding pedigree alpacas with fine, dense and commercially valuable fleeces in all colours.

In 2006 Kerry graduated from York University with a first-class honours degree in English and came back to her parents’ home and their herd of 80 alpacas. Each year alpacas are sheared for their fleeces and as the TOFT herd grew, the mounds of alpaca fleece in the Bettinson’s home grew too. After Kerry’s attempt to sell the fibre was unsuccessful, she took it upon herself to learn about the industry and manufacture the first batches of TOFT Alpaca yarn here in the UK.

Edward’s Menagerie The New Collection by Kerry Lord is Kerry’s latest book.
