We use real coyote and blue fox fur because they do not freeze nor retain water, and disrupts wind flow - reducing cold air contact to the face. Because the furs we use are natural, it is also biodegradable.
Please note that all of our furs are imported and ethically sourced from Canada and Finland. The Canadian furs meet stringent ethical requirements including the AIHTS (Agreement on Humane Trapping Standards) and BMP (Best Management Practices). The Finnish furs are Saga certified, traceable, and in compliance with their national legal requirements.
