Fur Ruff Sewing Instructions

  • Purchasing Fur Hide

Before purchasing the fur check for large holes which can’t be repaired. Also check for hair slippage. This means that if you pull gently on the fur, does a lot of it come off in your hand? If so, the fur is ‘rotten’, and should not be purchased. If you would like us to make a fur ruff for you, go to my Website below:
