This fiber is 100% mink fur which has been combed and is in top form. It is very soft at 15 microns. Best suited for lighter wear such as hats or scarves rather than mittens and sweaters. Or it can be blended with another fiber to give it more strength. It will work best spun into a two or more ply yarn. As it is combed there isn't guard hair present and the fiber is longer than most mink you will find on the market making it a bit easier to spin.
You are buying 28 grams (1 ounce) in this listing. This is a natural off white color in combed top form. Staple length is about 35mm (1.3 inches). It is available in natural brown in another listing. The last photo shows both colors together.
To get the nicest fiber, the mink need to be well cared for. By shearing and de-hairing, or combing the fiber, this makes the fiber a renewable resource just like wool and angora rabbit fiber. Thus you can wear mink without harming the animal.
