Apparently, one of the top trends for Fall 2010 is FUR (real or faux). See the article I'm reading here.
Purlieu, when made out of the pattern yarn (spincycle's novelty yarn) reminds me of a luxurious furry collar. I try to stay current on fashion without being trendy or tasteless. Right now I am scheming up another soft, furry, knit for your fuzzle-tastic delight. Stay tuned.
