Most of us probably have those long tweezers with the narrow curved end for threading the overlocker. It turns out that they are perfect for pulling out the fur pile that has got caught in the seam when stitching fur fabric. The narrow 'foot' bit slips under the pile quite easily and then you can tug it up to the right side. Its surprising quick to do this, working from the right side, pushing back the pile which hasn't been caught in the stitching with your thumb and moving along the seam with the tweezers.
