Something to consider when buying Hair on Hide Products: “It’s a natural product, it’s going to shed.” Just like knitwear pilling, thinning and shedding may occur. The parts that get more use will show wear sooner, such as the side that rubs against your hip. Knitwear will cause this to happen sooner than other fabrics. The hairs also might get caught in your knits. This is simply a side effect of carrying a beautiful hair on hide bag. If this is a side effect that you are unhappy with, then hair on hide might not be the best choice for you. It is a delicate product, please handle with care.
