Thanks for this. I know Mohair. It's expensive, natural and high quality. It's also the wrong product for this coat IMHO. No matter what they send you, I dont think it will work. Different type of fur perhaps. just my thoughts. But in these, the color, drape and texture is all wrong.Ok. A few updates. First off, full disclaimer: these are not professional grade photos in proper lighting by any means. Unfortunately usps came super late in the day, so I wasn't able to properly photograph all the samples in natural daylight (but will aim to do so later this week). I took these shots under a white led lamp.
This sherpa is a product called Mohair. Essentially it's what teddy bears used to be made from before sherpa shearling (imitation fur) was as common of a thing. The distributor sent me about 5 samples to choose from, and out of them, this one was closest in terms of overall texture and drape. They offer a variety of colors, including darker and more cold-toned browns than this, but I can tell you having seen it in person that this color is much less warm-toned than it appears in this photo. I think the very warm toned color might be my Samsung phone camera attempting to adjust in contrast to the other colors in the shot.
On the left is the sherpa coat Mechanismo recommended from Amazon, in the middle beneath it is the stock shearling Soul Revolver uses, and on the right is what my distributor sent me in a color described as "chocolate" (they also offer a darker brown than this, which I think would be closer). I can tell you that the backing to this is super-thin, and the sherpa overall is less...smushy, for lack of a better term, compared to what Soul Revolver uses, which I think would result in a more comfortable wear around the face when wearing the collar up. All that said, I think the mohair needs to be thicker and less sparse. I wrote the seller to ask if they had any thicker options in a similar drape, but I'll let you all be the judge. I'm including three photos, just so you can see how drastically the color changes depending on lighting. Those are all the same sample of fabric.
