Though we think of fur as part of the animal that wears it, the history of the word fur begins with clothing rather than animals. Middle English furre , “fur trim or lining for a garment,” was shortened from the synonymous word furour , or else derived from a verb furren , “to trim or line (a garment) with animal skin.” This verb was borrowed from medieval French fourrer , with the identical meaning. Fourrer is a derivative of fuerre , meaning “sheath, wrapper,” since lining a garment provides a sort of warm wrapper for its wearer.
