Made this wolf parka few years ago. My husband said it’s very light and warm compared to wearing a material park. I used about four wolf skins to make the parka.<br /> My name is Sharon Okalik from Whale Cove Nunavut. I also sew parkas, amauti and hand sew mitts.<br /> okalik@hotmail.com

Also leather mitts. Good for in town and during spring/fall time when it’s not too cold.
