Chinchilla fur is a soft and dense fur, almost silky to the touch. Due to the fur’s look and feel, chinchilla furs are regarded as one of the most exclusive materials available. Most chinchillas have a beautiful blue-grey colour, darkest on the back shading to a lighter grey on the sides. However, several other colours are available such as white, ebony, violet and sapphire. The fur is very warm, despite being one of the lightest. However, it’s a very delicate fur – it needs much care and is not resistant to damp weather.
