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

1.5b now released. To craft your hoods, read the instructions below!

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.

(Low resolution versions of the Fur Hoods are now available on Skyrimnexus.)


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


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

I notice that when running to the left there is a clipping issue. Probably easy to resolve, but whatever. Just felt like pointing it out.
Favorite mod by the way. Love furred hoods.

Hey, if you can figure out how to to make a riding or walking cloak that looks real and doesn't resemble a big bulky fur sleeping bag hanging from a person's neck, that would be awesome. The cloaks I'm refering to had two hand slots so you could hold the reins while riding a horse or to just open a door since they were sewn in long strips in order to make an overlap where the arm holes were to stop the heat from escaping and all you'd need is a fur hat or hood. They would likely look better while riding or walking if there was a front and rear slice or pleat in the garment. Please give it a try and see what you can create. God knows there is enough fur types that several different weights could be created too.

Can you put the non HD version on the steam workshop? I think these hoods look badass and I would love to use them but I'm on a slow computer and downloading from the nexus ins't an option due to circumstances. I'm going to try the HD now and see if it will kill my performance or not.

Also, will this work with other light armor and heavy armor types?
ZalrokChaos Jun 15 @ 1:21pm 
Is this compatible with cape mods?
@Indysax Circlet Helms for the Helmet disinclined will allow you to forge or find circlets that add armor and that are for all armor types. (will require dlc addons.)
