I'm wondering if there's some way to thin faux fur so that it doesn't stand up/fluff out so much, either by shaving in some way or when removing the backing. The hair is a fairly good length in general for what I'm doing, so I'd rather not shorten the ends/guard hairs too much, but I believe that the fur has a sort of undercoat that is making it look too fluffy for what I have intended. That's the only issue with the fur though. The colour and basic style of the fur is perfect, and I'd rather not give up on it, nothing else I've found is even close to what I'm looking for! Is there any way to just remove the fluffy undercoat?
I'll also be experimenting with simply styling the hair with water and flattening it out/crushing it to get the look I need, so it's not so fluffy and standing up the way it does. But that will be only if I can't find a way to thin it out.
If I do find a solution, I'll be sure to post it here in case anyone else has the same issue!
Thanks in advance!

PS: If needed, I can post pictures of the fur in question and the look of the creature I'm trying to achieve, though I assume the question is fairly straight forward. But if it's necessary, it's necessary!
