Beaver fur is thick, soft, warm and hard-wearing.
Beaver fur is used in it’s natural length, plucked, or sheared.
Natural Beaver has a long shiny wirey top layer of guardhair and a thick softer layer of underfur. The coloration is brown, light brown, a combination of dark brown with lighter shades of brown on the sides, or silvery. The fur is very durable and makes great casual wear for both men and women.
Sheared Beaver is plucked and sheared to a soft, velvety pile. Natural coloration is the same as mentioned above. Sheared Beaver is also dyed a variety of colors. Sometimes the natural brown is dyed darker in the center with the lighter shades of brown being further lightened or bleached and sometimes the fur is dyed other fun colors, sometimes including colorful stenciled designs within the fur. The fur mats mats over time from moisture in the air and from getting wet.
