Long black thick fur identification?


Recommended Posts

It looks like a fur ball keyring. But with only the ring shown for perspective, it is a bit hard to tell exactly what the fur is. Also the fact that dark furs are very difficult to light properly for photography does not help.


It is probably a dyed fur which also does not help. My initial guess would be dyed fox as it does not appear to have the thicker guard hairs of a mink or beaver.

Thanks for the additional info.

As you describe it as "long & thick", I will stick with my initial guess of dyed fox. However, it could possibly be dyed finn raccoon, dyed coyote, or possibly something else - I really can't tell for sure. Hopefully someone with more experience will provide a better answer.


It does look like the item needs to be cleaned and glazed as some of the hair looks dirty and matted together.

We need an expert on this one.


But fox is often dyed. Fox has the different length hairs like that. I think fox was often used for muffs. I would think percentages would be pretty high on that guess.
