Recommended faux fur care:
Hand wash or machine wash with cool water only. Allow to air dry or use no-heat tumble dry if using a dryer. Excessive heat will ruin and melt the fur!
How to remove creases:
1. Lay the fur piece out on a flat surface.
2. Using a hairdryer on medium heat, blow the fur fibers in the direction of the pile. You may want to use a slicker brush to help straighten the fibers.
3. After a few seconds of heat, the fibers should mostly straighten back out. Repeat over the rest of the piece and it should be mostly fixed. WARNING: Don't hold the hairdryer for too long in one spot - this will cause the fibers to MELT which will permanently ruin the fur.

This is a high quality handpaw light kit from FurryCircuits.com. Can be used to light paw pads or claws.
Includes LEDs (either 4 [4 claws], 5 [5 claws], 5 [4 fingers + palm pad], or 6 [5 fingers + palm pad]) pre-soldered to a USB connector. Includes 2 USB batteries. Simply run the LEDs through the back side of the paws and light them up!
The kit measures ~9.5 inches (24cm) from the tip of the middle finger to the joining point of all the LEDs. The other fingers are scaled accordingly. The default wire length from the USB connector to the bottom of the LEDs is 3-4 inches (8-10cm), making a total length of fingertip to battery pack approximately 12.5 to 13.5 inches (32-34 cm). You can alternately choose a longer wire if you plan to put the battery pack further up your arm.
For best results, install before affixing paw pads. You can pull the pads off, install the lights, then put them back on, but it'll be much easier if you don't.
Also, please note, this item includes everything you need to add lights to your paws. It does NOT include the actual handpaws.
1. a. If lighting paw pads: Preferably before installing paw pads, use a large gauge needle or other pointy object to penetrate the finger where you want to install the LED. Optionally, and only if you feel comfortable with it, it's much easier and effective to simply cut a very small hole with a pair of scissors. You'll be hot gluing over it anyway, so it won't compromise the integrity of the fur or backing.
1. b. If lighting claws: Be sure to use semitransparent claws which are either white/clear or matching the color of your LEDs. The best option to light LED claws is to simply glue the LEDs to the base of the claws prior to installing the claws as you normally would.
2. If lighting paw pads: If you use the needle, while it is still in place, use it as a guide to push the LED through to the outside of the paw from the inside. Otherwise, just push the LED through the hole. Repeat for all fingers plus the palm if lighting paw pads.
3. After all the LEDs are in place, connect the battery and turn them on. Check to ensure proper placement.
4. If lighting paw pads: Affix the pads to the paw. For improved results, leave the LEDs lit up until you actually begin gluing. This will ensure proper placement of paws for optimal lighting effect.
Please note: This kit includes lights and battery packs only. Does not include claws, paw pads, or other supplies for making handpaws. Image shown is only an example.
