Black Wolf Skin Headdress by NaturePunk Black Wolf Skin Headdress by NaturePunk
The wolf whose skin was used for this piece came from an auction for the leftover stock of an out-of-business fur company.
It is a large wolf, over 73" long from nose to tail tip, and was professionally garment tanned. He has some of the softest, most luxurious fur of any canid I've worked with yet. The guard hairs on his back are VERY thick and silky, and the underfur is dense and warm to the touch. The guard hairs are an impressive 7" long!

The final product will have red-and-white pheasant feathers on it and the underside of the pelt will be lined with a dark red recycled felt fabric.

The photograph was taken by my boyfriend, whose additional work can be viewed here: [link]

I made this as a commission for a friend of mine. You can view the listing on Etsy here: [link]

This particular one was over $1,000.00 but that's because it was a very good pelt to start with. Others I've made have been as low as $370.00.
