Fur is an incredible material to work with. When it comes to fur we use all the material. The rest materials aren’t even less valuable because they have their own characteristics. We use them both for garments and accessories. It can be seen on products that have patch sewn surfaces that give the product its own unique look. We use it as well for our knitted products so the product becomes more flexible and lighter.
How to take care of the garment?
Fur garments can have a long lifetime because of the materials durability. But it is also all about taking care of the garment. Heiðar furrier says it is important to use your fur coat to let it breathe and be worn. Fur is a natural material and therefor self cleansing, if you just hang it outside in the fresh air. If you are unlucky and get a stain on your garment you can use a damp cloth on the stain. Let it dry on its own, do not use extra heat. We recommend to comb the hairs with a pet comb to fluff the hairs out. Otherwise special dry clean only for fur garments.

If you are unlucky and get a small stain, minor soiling can be sponged off with a damp cloth. It is also good to use special cleaning liquid for wool, you mix it with water and use it carefully only on the stain. Do not use too much water. After cleaning we recommend to stretch the lambskin and leave it to dry. It is always good to comb the hairs with a pet comb to fluff the hairs out.
To keep the wool fluffy and soft, brush somewhat regularly, vacuum or just hang it outside on a windy day.
Do not expose dyed wool or lambskin to a direct and strong sunlight because color change may occur.
