Beaver:Tanned fur has been professionally tanned for garment grade. Our fur is graded and only grades I & II are offered to you. This means that we have chosen the best quality to offer. These furs have very soft, supple and stretchy leather making them excellent for use as wall hangers of for garment use. All measurements are after the fur has been tanned, and most measurements are from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. Muskrats and Opossum are from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail. Beaver are measured at a diagonal from front foot hole to the opposite back foot hole, then double that length. (see tanned beaver pictures for more detail).
