Thick and animal-like, solid underfoot. Very dark sheepskin, hard to capture photographically as little light is reflected back. That light which does emerge is richly tinted in dark chocolate. The fur is very smooth and granular feeling, again this sheepskin scores highly on the sensitivity to animal scale – it might not suit you if you find animal products hard to live with. If that is not an issue for you Christow offers style-able hair which can be satisfying brushed or combed as in an AMSR video (if you’ve never seen them they are worth a look as they feature sequences of satisfying physical manipulation – one will be a guy cutting a sticky sand cube in half and another might be a tea towel being folded. It’s surprisingly enjoyable to watch, if a tad strange. Nonetheless, Christow can be brushed enjoyably, and if you can manage to capture the reflected light from these very dark hairs, then you might be able to make your own YouTube channel).
