.......you could.......but you would be best finding the right color


but if you are up for the work of redying it after just a couple of washes then..... I guess



(but I only make bases so I know nearly nothing about fur)

If you can't find the color, maybe look online? But I do have some other tips, dont buy the cheap, not soft stuff, the soft, long, nice stuff may be double the price, but it's also double(Or maybe more) the quality. And always buy a small swatch of the fabric, take it home, and cut it with an xacto knife, scissors, sew it a bit, etc, make sure you like/are able to work with it, I've gotten a really soft pretty fur for my current head's face fur, but when I got it home, I realized my machine can't sew it, it's too fluffy and thick. (My machine is VERY good, but this fabrick thick as oatmeal smh) and it sheds like hell. Working with a fabric like that is so difficult, always test it before buying a bunch of it.

you can have custom made fur! they dye it professionally and such so it lasts, its a lot more pricey but certainly worth it ;w;
