Arctic Fox is an excellent material for use as a wing in smaller flies and as an under-wing in bigger flies. Arctic Fox is the softest of all fox materials. The guard-hair of these tails is approximately 2 inches on average.
The Arctic Fox has very flattened hair all over its body where the top layer (guard hair) is only slightly longer than the dense bottom layer (down hair). The pelts of wild Arctic Foxes have a blue coloration (a blue fox) which is characterized by dark ends of the guard hair. At present there is a number of colour mutations of foxes found in fox farming such as a Frost Fox (almost black), a Platinum Fox, a Sapphire Fox and the most desired ones that is a Shadow Fox and a White Fox because of easy and saturated colorations of their fur in the dyeing process.
