Authenticity of Our Fur Products

All our products, including fur blankets and accessories, are crafted from genuine, high-quality fur. Each piece is unique and meticulously made, ensuring a touch of luxury in every item. Note that slight size variations are natural due to the unique nature of fur.

Varieties of Fur: Hand vs. Machine Processing

Understanding the processing of fur is crucial in appreciating its quality and texture. Here’s a closer look at the different methods and what they mean for you:

  • Hand-Plucked and Sheared Fur (Premium Quality): Involves meticulous removal of guard hairs by hand, resulting in ultra-soft, luxurious fur. Ideal for those seeking the highest quality and exclusivity.
  • Machine-Plucked and Sheared Fur (High Quality): Faster processing with machines, still offers a plush feel but with slight texture variations. A balance between luxury and affordability.
  • Only Sheared Fur (Cost-Effective Choice): Sheared without removing top guard hairs, retains natural texture and ruggedness. Great for a rustic aesthetic and durability.

Each type has its unique characteristics, from the luxurious feel of hand-plucked fur to the natural ruggedness of only sheared fur. Consider your style and needs when choosing.
