Products made from fox fur.
Fox is one of the most versatile furs in the industry, making it one of the most commonly sought-after furs.
While you can find coats and jackets made of fox pelts, you can also find gloves, hats, scarves, capes, and other accessories made with luxurious and cozy fur.
One of the most common uses of foxes is trim on other fur products. Whether you’re a fur connoisseur or a novice, there’s a good chance you’ve seen fox fur as the trim on a suede or mink jacket. You might even see fox fur as the fluffy cuffs on a coat as well.
The longer hairs give the fur a fuller and fluffier appearance and give other short-haired products a bit more depth and detail. The average length of fox fur on a jacket is between 1.5″ to 3″, making them exceptionally well insulated.
Types of fox fur.
When we say fox, we’re using it broadly. There are dozens of breeds of foxes used in elegant fur products; some types are used more and more popular than others. In general, they all have a similar look and feel, but with some slight differences – primarily in coloring; however, we’ll get to that later.
Some of the most common types of fox fur you’ll see are blue fox, silver fox, and red fox. These types have some of the most beautiful colors and have a great feel and consistency.
These foxes are farmed worldwide, from Scandinavia to North America. While you can find some of the more common breeds anywhere, the more unique species may come from a single source—for example, blue fox, which is almost exclusively bred and ranched in Scandanavia.
Wide range of coloring.
If the fluffiness of the fur doesn’t give it away, you’ll almost certainly be able to identify fox by its traditional reddish coloring.
For decades, the reddish-brown color of fox has been the staple throughout the industry. The color is iconic.
Now, though, several other colors of fox are becoming increasingly popular. Different breeds of foxes are being used in coats and accessories, and dying provides a level of personalization never seen before in the fur industry.
The different breeds come with the unique colors and characteristics of their fur.
Silver fox, for example, has a silver hue to it from the white and black tones coming together. This silver-ish blend makes the garment more versatile and can go with various combinations of outfits and accessories; after all, silver goes with just about anything. It’s also worth noting that the guard hairs of the silver fox are slightly longer than that of the other types.
Another great option, if you’re aiming for elegance over versatility, is the black fox. These are extremely rare, but the lush black screams elegance, beauty, and sophistication. When you want to command the attention of a room, a black fox stroller is the way to go. Like the silver fox, a black fox garment can go with just about anything.
Pricing compared to other furs.
The price of the garment is one of the primary considerations for most consumers. Fortunately, for those looking for budget-friendly fur that gives the elegance and class of high-end fur products, the fox is an excellent option.
Most full-length or seven-eighths length coats sell for between $1,000 and $2,000. There are many factors involved in the cost, but in general, fox products are usually less expensive than mink but more expensive than rabbit.
It’s a decent and versatile fur that won’t break the bank. You can get into beautiful fur for much less than other types for the cost.
Final thoughts on fox fur.
Fox fur has a timeless look with a luxurious and beautiful material that has been used in clothing and accessories for centuries. While it’s a popular option for coats, jackets, and hats, it’s also one of the most common types of fur trim, thanks to its lush feel and wide range of colors.
