Some Wookie costumes were made from human hair

The “Wookiee Fur” was made from dozens of human hair wigs while the Chewie costume was made of knitted mohair and yak and rabbit hair.

The character of Chewbacca was inspired by the dog of George Lucas, Indiana, a great Malamute of Alaska, who often served him as “co-pilot” sitting in the passenger seat of his car. In Episode IV, he is 200 years old.
