We can make bed spreads
out of any fur that your want. Common furs used for bed
spreads are beaver, fox, coyote, and rabbit. Prices vary depending
upon the size of the bed spread, the type and quality of fur used,
and market prices at the time.
Sheared beaver makes a truly decadent bed
spread. Natural beaver skins have a stiff guard hair that is
removed in the shearing process. The "plucked"
beaver has just the soft under fur. Expect to pay US$6,500 for
a queen size sheared beaver blanket. Click HERE

Fox Fur Blanket
Fox furs can also be used to make nice
blankets. Expect to pay US$165.00 / sq. ft. for a fox fur
blanket (based on a minimum size of 4 ft. x 6 ft.). Therefore,
the cost of a king-sized (~6 feet x
7.5 feet) fox fur blanket is US$7,425.00. The cost of a 5' x
6' throw or blanket is US$4,950.00. To get an idea of color, click HERE

a red fox skin. This pricing applies to blue fox, red fox, and
We can use heavily furred, good quality coyote skins
to make blankets. The skins will be matched to ensure the best
look possible. Each pelt has a useable area of around 28" long by
10" wide. This works out to 280 square
inches per pelt. The pelts have a 1"-2" ridge in the middle
running the length of the pelt.
For a 72" by 90" king-size blanket with
to pay US$4,500.00. Unless
told otherwise, we will piece the skins using rectangles with the
back ridge running the length of the bed. We can use velvet or
wool for the backing. We do not recommend a silk backing
because it's not strong enough, it stretches, and unravels easily.

"I recently received my coyote throw and
am thrilled with it. It is beautiful and I appreciate the
great craftsmanship and service. Hopefully, my wife will want
her own so I won't have to share it."
