The amount of wear the blanket/pelt can take.
The higher the softness scale, the more flowy and silky it is. Course fur is undesirable, but guard hair can be more course than the under fur.
The concentration of underfur per square inch. High density is typically a warmer blanket.
The pureness of the color, some animals have less dominant coloring which can yellow or have an undesirable tint. Higher clarity will demonstrate a richer and more luxurious fur.
Weight is not desirable or undersirable. It has to do with the density of the fur, the underfur and the thickness of the pelt’s skin. Some buyers like light blankets, others like heavy.
Highly sustainable. Wild fur is one of the most sustainable commodities in the world. Animals are important to the environment, however too many throw off the balance in their ecosystem. Since the beginning of the 20th century and the advent of modern science-based wildlife management, man has been nurturing the balance and is keeping these animals in harmony with their environment, while not depleting the stock. Faux fur, or fake fur is made from acrylic and polyester which are plastics, and a derivative of oil, that create toxins when being manufactured. Real fur is always the most sustainable route.
