^ Right, but if you want REAL fur, there's no way you're going to be able to get it without a skin backing...since sheared fur would essentially be a pile of fluff (a la sheep's wool) and utterly useless for making Sesshomaru's big fluffy shoulder thing.
I've also found some 3" pile faux fur on ebay that looks real (silver wolf fur, see my YamaPi costume in my gallery), so again ebay is the way to go.
