Brave the harsh Skyrim weather and keep warm with your trusty fur hood.

Update: 1.5 changes the way the hoods are crafted, see the instructions below

(Including custom Normal Maps, Specularity Maps and Alpha Transparencies)

Now wearable with circlets and available in all armor types, three different colors, with and without scarves. This mod also introduces 3 new crafting materials and new dynamic recipes.

*1024x1024 and 512x512 versions are available under Optional Files


To make your own hoods... you must first craft fur scraps (brown, black and white) from animal pelts at the tanning rack. Then use these new fur scraps at the forge!

By default, only three hood recipes appear under Hide at the forge... Once you have enough fur scraps in your inventory, several new hood recipes will appear: including padded, armored, and scarf-less versions. You can tell the scarf and scarf-less versions apart by their respective preview items.


The hood/scarf model used for this mod was created by Bethesda and was originally unplayable due to important clipping with various armors. You will have to test and decide for yourself what suits your tastes. It works particularly well with Hide Armor, Studded Armor, Scaled (Horn) Armor, Iron Armor, Banded-Iron Armor, Wolf Armor, Steel Armor, Nightingale Armor, Shroud Armor and more!

A scarf-less version is available at the forge as of 1.5 to help with clipping.
