Ferrets are sold under the name Fitch. Each year 15,000 are raised for their fur, primarily in Finland, but also in Sweden, New Zealand and Poland.
In late November the Ferret’s fur becomes ‘prime’ and reaches its highest commercial value.
They come in a wide variety of colors to include sable, albino, cinnamon, silver, white with black eyes, chocolate, Siamese, panda, and Shetland sable.
The Ferret’s hair will thicken in the winter and lighten in the summer.
It is illegal to breed ferrets in the US for fur.
The Ferret is a member of the Mustelidae family that also includes the Weasel, Skunk, Marten, Mink, Badger, Otter, Ermine, and European polecat.
