Jonval Leathers and Furs Discusses The Different Types of Fox Fur


In the last few of blogs Jonval Leathers and Furs moved on from discussing the different types of leather, and started exploring the other side of Jonval Leathers and Furs—furs! We have begun our discussion on the different types of animals the furs for the clothing and accessories come from. 

Similar to leather, you would be surprised to find out just how many types of fur are used for clothing. In this blog series we will describe the fur and what makes it unique, special, or great for a particular type of clothing or accessory. 

Jonval Leathers and Furs began its discussion of the different types of fur starting with beaver fur and then moved onto discussing chinchilla, one of the most coveted and expensive furs. Then, we talked about coyote fur which while not so coveted is still a very warm and pretty fur to wear.

In this last week’s blog, we will move onto our next type of fur, fox fur. The fox can be found all over the world. It is very versatile when it comes to using it for fur in clothing and accessories. This is because it can come in a variety of natural colors.

In this week’s blog, we will continue our discussion on fox fur. We will delve into all the different types of foxes, and therefore, fox fur there are. 

Blue Fox
This fox is ranched almost exclusively and extensively in the Scandinavian region. It can also be considered an Arctic fox. Its color is usually white in the winter and brown in the summer. That sounds off, right, if it is called the blue fox. This is because only about 1% of these foxes are born with the coveted blue fur it is famous for. This blue coat can appear dark blue or grey throughout the year.

Cross Fox
This fox gets its apt name from the cruciform that can usually be found on the top of its head on its neck region. This fox fur will be red with a yellow tint to it. The cross mark on this fox will be more red with some black highlights.

Some of these cross foxes can be silver. When this is the case they take the name of silver cross fox. While unique, these foxes are actually not all that rare. They are pretty common in northern North American and make up about 30% of Canada’s red fox population.

Gray Fox
While rather common, the gray fox is pretty hard to spot because it is so elusive in the wild. These foxes are nocturnal, but may likely forage during the day. These are largely found in North America. The best pelts tend to come from the northern states. The fur colors can range in color from silver to grey and have a slight red tint to it.

There are a few more foxes to explore in the next blog. All are unique in some way and their furs are coveted. Stop by Jonval Leathers and Furs today for all your leather and fur needs.
