Mink is native to North America and mainly ranch-raised in North America and Scandinavian countries. Ranch raised mink fur tends to be fuller with deeper, more vibrant natural color. Very few wild mink are trapped any more because ranched mink are so superior in quality and color. Undyed mink is available in an incredible array of colors. The fur is about an inch long, which allows for a coat that is less bulky and more flattering to the female figure. Mink's known for its glamour and durability; a mink coat can last a lifetime if cared for properly. Female mink are smaller and have softer, lighter pelts than the males. Consequently, more female skins are needed for a coat than male skins. It’s just as warm, however, the weight may be less. Mink is used in all sorts of fashion and decor, but is renowned for its application in luxury fur coats.
