Had trouble with the title so sorry if it sounds... 'strange.'

I just want to make a tail of Achilles for myself to wear but I'm unable to find his correct fur colors. I've looked on fursuit supplies mainly and they possibly only have the color for Achilles top layer. The other two I'm unable to find a 'closer' match.

This is Achilles fur: 

Spoiler


I went to Joanns about two weeks ago but the lady said they didn't have faux fur. The only type of fur they did have was more of wild cat prints. Every other site I'm pretty much have low confidence in choosing my fur because I believe when I get it that It won't match his fur colors. 

That was probably confusing how I said that. Basically: Could you guys help me find fur that matches Achilles colors? I believe I only need half a yard and I could really use the help of others opinions on what fur they think matches.

Thank you

I was going to suggest Joann's, but I guess not.

I looked for "brown faux fur" on ebay, and this listing seems like it has all of your colors: http://www.ebay.com/...=item27c1fd5289

I don't know if you've found what you were looking for or not, but some of the faux fur suppliers allow you to request swatches.

 

You can check Mendel's ( http://mendels.com/fur1.shtml and http://mendels.com/fur2.shtml ) and CR's Crafts ( http://www.crscraft.com/products/vProduct2.asp?pid=Fur&L1=3&L2=1&L3=0&L4=0&V2=1&V3=0&V4=0&cat=crafts&sub=Fabrics&class= ) as both have ways to acquire swatches.
