yes, that's where I bought the fur. It is the longest fur I found that has Elmo red color.

I just finished mine last night. I found that the Red Shaggy Mongolian fur from Mendel's was an almost exact match. I boiled it for 20 seconds then dried it for 27 minutes in the dryer. I had to trim the fur down some and I added some hair mouse to areas of the face to give it some extra texture. I do feel like I made his hands a little bit too big though.

I used the methods of boiling the fur as you described here to make my Elmo that is my avatar. Your help was so appreciated. I really appreciate the sharing that goes on here. My puppet came out as good as it did because of all of you here. I also followed your method for tying the fleece. I was very happy with the color. Thanks again.

I just finished with my first replica, Elmo. I used Mostro pattern from Projectpuppet.com . I bought the faux fur from Fabric Empire (http://www.fabricempire.com/faux-fur-shaggy-red.aspx) , one yard is more than enough for Elmo. For the nose, I used 4 inches styrofoam ball and sculpted it with coarse sand paper and cover it with dyed Antron fleece. For the eyes, I bought 50mm Christmas ornaments from Amazon.com and then sprayed it with white spray paint and use black felt as pupils.
