Because the fur is not attached to a pelt, but consists of individual (clumps of) hair, the fur first needs to be processed. The hairs are quite long so they can be easily felted. Expert weavers are able to spin the fur or even weave cloth using individual hairs, although these processes are very labor intensive. The fur takes dyes very well and can be dyed in any color after it has been bleached. This is typically done prior to the manufactoring of the felt, yarn or cloth but can also be done afterward to create different designs.
