Faux Furs

We have a number of gorgeous faux furs this season, just right for trimming a wool coat or making a whole garment!

This bronze faux fur has a slightly metallic effect and a black underlayer that creates great texture.

This red fur has a stunning deep hue and is as soft as baby bunnies!

We have Persian Lamb in both black and grey. It's not really made from lambs! The cropped, curly texture is reminiscent of a lamb's wooly coat.

This deep-pile jet-black fur is classic and has a great shine.
