Is fur warm?
Fur is one of the warmest insulators, which is why it’s so highly used in winter wear. Certain fur types are warmer than others, however, any fur will keep you toasty warm during those cold winter months. Long haired beaver and sheepskin are known to be two of the warmest fur types available. Fur fashion offers far more warmth while still being comfortable and stylish. In addition, the fur your fur coat is made of diverts the air; this effect improves the coat’s insulation potential. Fur holds in body heat much better than other types of winter coats. This is what fur is innately designed to do.
