I've recently become interested in working with fur (making bears
), but I've only used raccoon and some mink so far, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about a few other kinds.
1. Does rabbit really shed like crazy? I've really wanted to get some to use (it's super cheap!), but my uncle insists that I'll be brushing it off of all of my clothes FOREVER.
2. Is muskrat soft, or coarse? Long? Thick? Nice undercoat?
I'm looking for something dense (or at least with a dense undercoat), not super short, and SOFT. Any recommendations?
