Procedural fur texture/Material help

Hello! Ive been looking for a way to make a fur like texture in blender as a different way to get that short fur look for a material without using the hair particle system

Unfortunately my attempt isn’t very soft looking.


Im looking to get something akin to this, I may be overshooting what may be possible with the textures provided in blender but there’s no harm in trying

You have to include the velvet shader. It can only do fur/nap standing right out though. Fur/nap with direction is currently impossible, shading wise at least.
