Squirrels are native to most countries. The best squirrel for fur purposes comes from Siberia. It is blue gray in color and is left natural. This gray squirrel is the miniver of the Middle Ages, when it was a status symbol worn only by the aristocracy and high-ranking dignitaries. Siberian squirrel is also dyed, as is other squirrel which tends to have an unattractive brown color. Brown squirrel comes from Canada. Squirrels from the United States aren't used for fur. The fur should be soft and silky, as well as dense in texture. A squirrel coat or jacket may wear eight years or more, with stoles, capes, and other little furs that aren't worn every day wearing much longer with care.
