We have a winner – I think…

I recut the collar out of a different fur today. This fur is much shorter and smoother than the other, kind of a pelted sheared beaver. I think this works much better with the jacket as it won’t be so overwhelming once I add the cuffs. What do you think?

Don’t ask me how I managed (despite careful marking) to screw up the alignment of the pelt lines but I did. Luckily, I have enough to recut.

    I agree that this shorter pile fur looks much better and doesn’t overwhelm the collar. Loving it so far!

    That is going to be awesome when you finish it! :-) The shorter fur is definitely a good choice.
