What is the difference between wild and ordinary mink and which fur should you give your preference to? These topical and exciting questions for any fashionista sometimes do not find an answer. Let's do a little investigation and find out if there are differences between these concepts.
Nork - beautiful shiny fur with a short pile of brown, chestnut-brown or brown color.
Wild mink - beautiful, warm, waterproof fur with a high smooth pile.
Common mink is grown on farms around the world on a huge scale. USA, Canada, Russia, Denmark, Finland, Holland, China... The list is endless. On the farms, the same species is bred - the American mink, however, depending on the place of breeding, the fur differs in its level of quality and properties. Wild commercial mink is very rare, less than 100 thousand skins are harvested per year. This species is much smaller than the farm and is characterized by a very high pile. The color of her fur is only gray-brown, and the underfur is always noticeably lighter than the awn. The skin of a wild animal always has various defects due to damage and bites of parasites, due to which it is cheaper. Products from such mink are practically not sewn, because it is not profitable. Of course, its skins are much cheaper, but they are much smaller in size, due to which their consumption increases. Commercially, wild mink is harvested and sold only in Canada.
To choose a mink coat, you must first decide on the purpose of purchasing it. For long enough walks, long products or knee-length are suitable. For women drivers and the fairer sex who lead an active lifestyle, it is better to take a closer look at sheepskin coats or mink jackets. Next, you should choose the color of the product. The current assortment allows you to purchase fur coats, complemented by trimming from other fur. By the way, classic models will help to hide figure flaws and make it more perfect. Miniature ladies should give their preference to sheepskin coats, while long products will only emphasize their short stature.
