Q:

What is Mongolian fur?

A:

Mongolian fur is the name for the fur of Mongolian lambs. It is commonly used for outerwear or household accessories, such as throw pillows.

Mongolian fur is silky to the touch, with 3-inch to 5-inch-long fibers which have a curly appearance. The fur's natural color is off-white, but it is commonly dyed in brilliant colors or bleached to appear bright white.

Care is required for maintaining the appearance of this type of fur, because it loses its curl and gets frizzy when wet.

If an alternative for Mongolian fur is needed, Tibetan lamb fur is said to have a similar feel and appearance.
