These are freshly made by hand in Oyo State, Nigeria by a Iyanifa. Like most fur products, initially you may need to shake it vigorously to decrease the shedding. Once the shedding stops, it is good to go. As long as you are not swinging it like you are trying to hit a home run in a baseball game, the shedding will be little to none.
