Fur techniques

Creating fur fashion starts with technique



Letting Out
Cutting the pelt into diagonal strips and re-sewing it to make the pelt longer and narrower. Sometimes referred to as dropping out. The effect is supple and smooth flowing.




Leathering

When you place leather striping between fur strips of equal widths to create a rippled or feathered appearance – it can horizontal or vertical.



Knitting

Knittable yarn is now produced by combining narrow strips of fur with silk or cotton yarn, and used in myriad techniques including crocheting, weaving and knitting.


Skin on Skin

Rectangular pelts are sewn together to create a box effect as an alternative to the letting out process.
