I purchased this very special fabric remnant on the top floor of Britex Fabrics in San Francisco about 4 years ago. I knew when I saw it, that I had to have it. It’s my favorite color, and it is so soft and thick, almost furry, that it feels like you are petting a rabbit. It is 100% baby alpaca. Very unique, and I looked for a long time to make the perfect coat with it. I paid about $200 for the 1 and 3/4 yard, 60 inch wide remnant. My goal with this fabric was to make a coat that could look luxe and perhaps look like it cost thousands rather than the few hundred it cost me to make.
