Mongolian fur is silky to the touch, with 3-inch to 5-inch-long fibers which have a curly appearance. The fur's natural color is off-white, but it is commonly dyed in brilliant colors or bleached to appear bright white.

Care is required for maintaining the appearance of this type of fur, because it loses its curl and gets frizzy when wet.

    How does moisture wicking work?

    A:

    Moisture wicking works in a way similar to that of a candle wick, from which the "wicking" process gets its name. A candle wick absorbs wax and draws it up toward the flame, and in the same way, moisture-wicking fabrics pull moisture away from the body and through to the outside of the fabric, where it can evaporate more easily.
