Foxfur is a type of leather produced when a cook butchers an arctic, fennec, or red fox at a butcher table.
The following animals provide Foxfur.
Foxfur is one of many textiles with protection stats almost identical to plainleather. However it diverges in most other values having better cold insulation, item hit points, market value and beauty factor. It is somewhat comparable to Bluefur in this regard.
As it is 6-way tied for the 11th most protective textile in the game, it is largely irrelevant as protective clothing after the very early game, and even then there are many other options that are just as good or better. While its cold insulation is moderately good, there are several textiles that provide both better protection and equivalent or better insulation, including wolf and bearskin, heavy fur, devilstrand and, of course, thrumbofur. Thus, like its use in protection, foxfur will be superceded in this role after the early game. The fact other common leathers create items with 30% more hit points further solidifiees this obsolence,
For use in furniture, its place as the textile with the 8th highest beauty factor and market value makes it a good choice for improving furniture beauty and room stats. However sourcing enough material to use this commonly will be difficult, as to gather enough fur for even a single armchair would require butchering of 5 foxes.
Foxfur's high market value also make it a valuable commodity, especially if processed into a high quality item of clothing or furniture first. While the efficiency of raising foxes for the slaughter is unknown, it is likely inferior to chinchillas and chinchilla fur for this purpose.
- Foxfur was added in update 0.19/1.0 as a merger of different fur types from foxes: arctic foxskin, fennec foxskin and red foxskin.
