Warmer Than The Mongol Yeti

The earliest account of the Yeti is written by H. Siiger, who reported that people in the Himalayas worshiped a Glacier Being as the God of the Hunt before other religions migrated to the area. No real description of this being is mentioned by Siiger, and while official stamps depict it pale, a lack of hard evidence means any of the eight colors available for this faux fur will still provide a credible yeti pelt.

The fabric is 58 to 60 inches wide and each strand of hair is roughly four inches long. The fabric is made from acrylic and polyester, making it easy to take care of and very durable, not stretching in either direction. Unmatched in warmth, each yard sells for only $28.99, making it an excellent buy for your project.

As this particular fabric doesn’t stretch, it may prove better on larger projects with less pieces, such as winter blankets, couch throws, or wall hangs. If being used for something with more pieces like costumes, take care when cutting or sewing, since fur sheds easily along the edges. You could probably make a coat, cape, skirt or scarf out of it without much risk to your machine.

Faux fur is more durable than real fur and easier to take care of, with less shedding than an actual pelt. This particular material is uniquely designed to mimic a Tundra wolf and doesn’t stretch, though it’s sixty inches across and sells for $29.99 a yard, making it ideal for projects large and small.

Grabbing a handful of fur can mean digging your fingers into the two and a half inches of this synthetic wolf fur, whether you’ve wrapped yourself up in a home-made coat or battened it into a sturdy blanket. Obviously, you can’t use this for making bed sheets, but there’s nothing stopping you from making more than one set of blankets and wrapping up in them to ward off a chill. A coat requires more cutting and sewing, though, just like any kind of clothing, costume, or accessory. Give yourself a little extra material on the edges than you think you need, since cutting the fabric causes shedding along the edges and you can always trim away what’s unnecessary. Sew slowly and don’t get frustrated, as the fibers can gum up machines quickly, making even the smallest projects take longer.

The animal kingdom is a riot of color, and humans have always been looking for a way to wear those colors themselves. Weighing in at a little over two and a half pounds a yard, this acrylic faux fur is 64″ inches across and sells at $18.99 a yard. But if you buy more than fifteen yards, you can get it down to $16.90, and when you double that, it becomes only $13.25 a yard. Buying in bulk becomes your friend, especially if you have a bunch of projects you want it for.

This dense pelt has a thickness of roughly one inch, making it ideal for pillows and warm blankets, either for your bed or the furniture. A vest made of fur makes an interesting fashion statement, or you can continue on, making a fur coat, shirt, or a pair of pants. Use it to add a bit of color to your accessories with fur trimming on your purse or your boots. Make arm and leg warmers, or stitch a long strip to itself and make a scarf out of it. With eleven distinct colors to choose from, there is likely one that will suit a project for you.
