During storage season we offer free at home pickup. Fur hates heat. It is not the actual hair that is affected, it is the hide or leather that can dry out, become stiff and crack. The opimum storage temperature is 45 degrees, and 50 percent humidity. In our fur storage vaults, the room is dark which prevents bleaching and fading of the color. Moths and other insects cannot survive at that temperature. Furs that are properly stored during hot weather can last up to fifty years or more.
