Ten Ways To Keep
Your Fur and Shearling In Top Condition
Always place your furs and shearlings in Cold Storage at Traeger
Furs. Traeger provides an on-site Cold Storage facility and service
center to care for your garment during the warm summer months.
Have your fur or shearling Traegerized (cleaned, conditioned or
weatherized) annually by Traeger Furs. After careful inspection by
professional furriers, your garment is treated to a unique, gentle
tumbling process requiring special machinery and environmentally-sound
cleaning compounds. "Traegerizing" is an exclusive process provided by
Never store your furs in home, especially in cedar closets or
basements. Because the air is kept dry in cedar to prevent moths, it can
also dry out the pelts, causing them to become brittle, crack and split.
Basements tend to be damp and can cause mildew.
Never mothproof your fur. Home treatments are no substitute for
Always hang your fur on a broad-shouldered hanger – never on a wire
hanger. Be sure to give your garment plenty of room in your closet so it
won’t be crushed.
Never cover your fur in a plastic bag. The plastic prevents air from
circulating, crushes the fur and rapidly dries out the hide.
Bring you fur to the Traeger’s for any repairs such as tears or rips
immediately to prevent more extensive and expensive repairs later.
If your fur gets wet, shake it out and allow it to air dry. Always
keep away from direct heat which will cause both the hide to become dry
and brittle. After the fur air dries, shake it again to fluff it up. If
your garment gets water-soaked, you must take it to Traeger Furs
immediately for proper treatment in order for it to remain soft and
retain its shape.
Try not to use shoulder straps or a handbag over your shoulder on a
consistent basis as this is abrasive and will cause worn areas. The same
applies to resting elbows on armrests. Always use care with closures.
Enjoy the warmth and beauty of your garment and always bring them to
Traeger Furs to ensure they receive the finest fur care possible!
