These new long-pile fabrics are EVER SO MUCH BETTER than the Malden Mills' vintage stuff.
I searched for that everywhere and found it in the most unlikely places, but it was hard work.
And hardly anyone liked the sheen of the 'Bright Nylon'.
These new fabrics replicate the best of all of the modern & traditional different mohair finishes/lengths/styles, but in perfect scale for us!
Gijzette: I paint the noses with nose gloss. Any clear glossy sealer will work. It gives them a very shiny/wet look.
Amanda: I call it extra-long cashmere (brown). This one has NO stretch so it's my favorite to use. It doesn't look like much at first because the fur lays down. But a little brushing fluffs it right up. It's so whispy looking. I really wish I had this one in lots of colors!!
Bobbie: That was the plan! They had to make several samples for me before they got what I was looking for. I figured if I was going to have fabric custom-made, then I should get EXACTLY what I wanted.
