Create your own anorak out of modern, waterproof fabrics to wick moisture away and keep you warm all winter. The anoraks are designed to cover your thighs and to accommodate many layers underneath. Complete the anorak with a hood with an (optional) coyote fur ruff* to trap warm air inside the hood that creates a micro-climate in front of your face. Create a beautiful, durable, windproof outer layer, no sewing experience required and all necessary materials are provided! Your instructors are Kielyn and Dave Marrone, husband and wife team and owners of the Sudbury-based company Lure of the North. They've built a life and career that is driven by their passion for traditional winter travel, crafts and northern culture. Eastern Coyote pelts are used for the coyote fur ruff surrounding the hoods. These are trapped in Canada and from a Canadian source. The fur industry in Canada is a highly regulated business and designed to be a sustainable practice with regulated rules.
