    Originally the term "silver belly" referred to the belly fur of the beaver. By the mid 20th century it came to only identify a specific color. Belly Beaver Fur Felt is the thickest and densest of the beaver hat bodies. Virtually waterproof, it consists of 100% belly beaver fur blended with felt to produce a strong hat body very soft to the hand.

    Mink fur has 2 layers of fur protected by thick oil making it wonderfully waterproof. The thick under fur is protected by slightly longer guard hairs making the fur amazingly soft and luxurious.
