Subject: [Puptcrit] Instant furry paws...



Hi all.
Today I was making a test puppet, and found out I had furry paws in my 
inventory, without ever having bought or made them!

I used a winter working glove as a glove inside a mouth puppet. The lining 
was too thick and tight and warm for comfort, so I removed it, by undoing 
the stich at the wrist. WOW! The lining is made so that the seams are not in 
contact with the skin, so you just need to reverse the lining to get fluffy 
furry gloves! Like old fashionned teddy bear!
Could be dyed any color. Mine were "unbleached cotton" color, but the lining 
is 100% acrylic.

The gloves have no brands on them, but are cheap, usually available at The 
Building Box (or similar giant surface hardware and home building center.) 
They are flashy red on the back with black band in the middle(lenght wise), 
and black finger tips.
Palm side of entire hand is black.

On the only label:
55% Nitryl
45% Cotton
Lining: 100% acrylic
Made in China
CA 07695
RN 83575

Don't buy those gloves for actually working outside in the winter, even if 
they were sold for that. Guaranteed frozen fingers...
