The Gender of Furs

Are there any difference(s) between garments made with male pelts or garments made with female pelts in terms of texture, color, length of hairs, etc.? I ask this question because I have seen furs that are labeled "female mink", but did not see any noticeable distinctions when comparing them to furs that are just labeled "mink".

I think the male mink pelts are heavier than female pelts. Male pelts tend to be larger that female mink pelts. I am not sure if the hair is slightly longer than female mink pelts. Maybe someone can correct me if I am wrong.

Usually coats made of female pelts considered to be better quality, thats why female pelts has usually softer fur and they are more lightweight ! But have in mind that there are different qualities of mink pelts, so a high quality male mink can be better than female! Usually coats made of female minks are better and more expensive!
