http://www.ebay.com/itm/271712661944
This vintage coat was made in the 1930s. It is made of 100% Alpaca pile, and would have been very expensive when new. The coat is double breasted with loop closure for the buttons instead of buttonholes, a common feature on fur and sheepskin coats to accommodate the thickness of the material. The coat is fully lined.
