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. Your fur is likely to be with you between 12th - 25th June
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 calculating the formula for the below shops we consider each $100 spent in these shops the equivalent of 1 yard in the other shops.
---- 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 use the calculator below or 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 (£15 for Howl and fursuitsupplies). Then you get 2% off if you're paying by bank transfer.
If you cannot see the calculator below, please click here.
Say you want my 2x0.5 yards howl fabric order that cost me £105, that would now instead be £70. 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.
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.
You can pay by bank transfer or Paypal, those who choose bank transfer get an extra 2% off.
A few extra notes : 1/2 yards or less, minky, sq ft in hairymannscloset add £5 each not £10 on top of the 1.5x cost before shipping. For adding just samples from any shop, just take the actual cost before shipping and add £5, no need for the 1.5x cost on samples.
Shipping to anywhere in Europe is possible, just anywhere outside mainland UK adds another £5/yd
Any orders that are 5 yards or more get 5% off, 10 yards or more get 10% off. This quarterly order tends to save you the most money if you're getting under 6-8yards from each shop, but you're welcome to get any amount, do your own calculations to check. These discounts are to help bigger orders to be more worth doing here.
—- terms —-
— if you pay early and we don’t reach the threshold to order, the full amount of money you sent me for that shop will be refunded on the date the order is due to be made and the order won't go ahead-
— 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.
— all orders in by 7pm the day before the order date (so usually by 7pm on the 2nd). If you're waiting to order until the last minute, consider setting a reminder so you don't miss it.
—you can reallocate funds, change which furs you want and add things any time, just pay the price difference or I'll refund it if it's less, just ensure your order is exactly how you want it by the deadline.
