furrier


Explanation:
Furrier would probably be the closest term, i.e. the person who prepares the fur, a maker of furs.

The Norwegian term "skinnfell" is another term for the Norwegian word "pels", but both words usually mean "fur" in English.

(Be aware though, that "pels" usually refers to a finished product, as in clothing, whereas "skinnfell" normally is of the coarser, unfinished variety and usually not a garment.)

Hope this will help.
