Next Order will be 3rd June. Open for orders now until 2nd June.
Tracking numbers will be shared with you and I will ship to you tracked using Parcelforce 48 the day after receiving the shipment. We'll use priority shipping with all companies so fur will be with you in about 10 business days. If there are delays or we order from a company like DVC it can take longer, but it would likely have taken that long ordering yourself too.
To order - read this page, message me what you want, provide shipping address, discuss and confirm with me by 7pm on 2nd June and pay by bank transfer or Paypal in full by midnight on 2nd June.
— once a supplier goes over 5 yards we will definitely order from there — order early if you know you’d like to order so other makers know — if there’s a supplier you want to be added just let me know. See fursuitmaterials.com for inspiration

Head base, claws, eyes, fans, etc suppliers. For these $100 in basket = £125 actual cost = 1 unit here. Use the same formula on your whole basket before shipping as below. Feel free to just contact me for a quote.
---- Info ----
We've all been hit by crazy shipping fees on one yard of fabric. The worst for me was £105 after shipping and customs for two half yard pieces of fur from howl fabric that would have been £35 to those in the US.
So I'm planning to order fur from America (and others if you want) 4 times a year - Feb 3rd, June 3rd, September 3rd and December 3rd, all to be sent to me to be sent on to you. Minimum order between all of us is 5 yards, so you might want 1 yard from crscrafts.com and another maker wants 4 yards, so we have enough to make the order.
Formula for calculating cost:
I understand this is confusing so feel free to just message me for a quote, but this is the formula I’m using for transparency-
In order to calculate what each yard will cost you the formula is to get the value of your basket or a yard of fur at a shop not including shipping, multiply it by 1.5, convert it to £ (Google can do this), round it down to the nearest £1, and add £10 per yard.
Say you want my 2x0.5 yards howl fabric order that cost me £105, that would now instead be £60. Shipped to your door with no customs to pay.
An explanation of fees: multiplying by 1.5 (adding 50%) gives us hopefully enough to factor in shipping and customs. The £10/yd is split into £3.90 as a buffer, £5.10 shipping our end, 50p donation to cool earth to offset our emissions and 50p donation to fursuitmaterials.com to help keep a useful site going.
If this works out to be more expensive than ordering yourself would be (including shipping and the 20% VAT +£8 handling fee) just let me know and I'll slightly undercut the price.
This is to make fur suppliers more accessible. I can also jump in with other orders to get them over the threshold and can stock our fur shop with more furs in future so that furs that would usually be only available from outside the UK will be available here, cheaper and faster.
For every £100 you personally spend on our order you get £2 back in cash or £5 towards a future order. After making the order you’ll be asked which you prefer. E.g. if you spend £560 throughout all purchases, you’ll get offered £10 in cash on 3rd February or £25 towards next time (June 3rd) or any future time we do this. This only applies if you pay by bank transfer, not PayPal.
—- terms —-
— if you pay early and we don’t reach the threshold to order you will be refunded in full on 3rd February--
— there is a bank account exclusively for this that will not be touched so your money is not at risk --
— you can request a full refund at any time before making the order and you can make as many changes as you like for free. After we make the order there are no refunds.
—you can reallocate funds and add things any time, just pay the price difference--
— you can leave it until the last minute and make an order up until 7pm on 2nd June if you want. Just set a reminder to make sure you don’t miss this if you’re waiting until the last minute
— you can also deposit any amount and just say what website you’ll be spending it on and decide what you actually want closer to the time. E.g. send £125 if you want to add 1 unit ($100 value) to a dreamvision creations shop but don’t know what you want yet- Or send a roughly accurate amount and refine it later, e.g. send £40 for a meter of luxury shag from fabric.com, but you don’t know what colour yet, then we’ll refine it and either I’ll refund the difference or you pay the difference when you decide which colour you want, you might want to do this to make it more likely we’ll cross a threshold as other makers will see it is close.
