Swakara is a robust breed, able to thrive despite the dry desert conditions in the southern parts of Namibia. In some parts of the country, conditions are so harsh that no other livestock or crop can be cultivated but swakara. In that sense, swakara is a shining example of how Namibia has worked with rural communities to provide both employment and resources. Contrary to what one might think, all parts of the swakara sheep are used and nothing goes to waste. Besides fur, Swakara sheep provide meat, wool, and leather to rural communities.
Swakara is a high-quality eco fur, highly regarded as a long-term investment in terms of style and durability.
