Commercial clothes is a worse to wear in the bush they quality is ppor and dammaage too soon and here in the cold ( winter -40 c and below summer 5 till 10 c ) are commercial clothes too cold ( i wear some 4 layers than, i begin to search to alternative clothing like the inuits have. Here in we have lots of winter pelts of reindeer hides so the dissicion has made that i'm make clothes out it. I've ordernd some books about it and started to recearch in this. So in Januari i begin with the work and in about 17 days i've finnished my clothing. Work, the cutting whas hard the pelts are strong and very tough i used a buchers knife for it, than i sew it on a machine that whasn't easy too some needles broke, but with hard work i finnished the project in 17 days. I've made a 2 layerd system 1st layer with the fur on the body side the 2th with the fur on the out side. I didn't the layers sew together , wear them seperate . I've made 2 hooded anoraks 2 high dungarees ( till armpit ) and boots. Wearing i wear the layers as follow the first layer the anorak inside the dungaree and the dungaree inside the boots the 2th layer i wear the dungaree inside the 2th layer of the boots and the dungaree inside the anorak. In the begin of wearing it was heavy the pelts are heavy in weight and moving goes slow. This i haved to learn at first, but it was fast the warmth did the work. I wear my pelts 24/7 out side and in side the cabin they are very comfort cant feel changes in temprature it looks like off the pelts regulate the temprature i'm also sleep in it lay down on the bad and sleep don't use blankets any more. Smell, the pelts have very strong smell since i wear them i smel very strong as a reindeer hide, even when i wash my self with soap and fresh water twice a week i still smell as a reindeer hinde ( my husband makes jokes about is and says he's married to a reindeer and also says thet i'm transformed in to a reindeer lol ) My conclusion, for in the artic are wearing fur pelts the best it is heavy and difficult in begining you must learn, but they are warm strong wind and water proof, for me this project is good i didn't want commerial clothes any more for me this is it.
