"...[and] a basket of funny multi-coloured furballs that were humming loudly."
—Description of puffskeins at the Magical Menagerie[src]

A Puffskein is covered in soft, fur and spherical in shape. It is a popular pet that does not object to being cuddled or thrown about. The Puffskein is a scavenger, eating anything from leftovers to spiders, but it particularly likes to use its long thin tongue to eat wizards' bogeys while they sleep. The Puffskein is easy to care for, and they emit a humming sound when they are content.

Ron Weasley owned a Puffskein at one point. Its demise is attributed to Fred, who supposedly used it for Bludger practice. A nest of dead puffskeins were also discovered in 12 Grimmauld Place under the sofa.

They were modified by Fred and George to create Pygmy Puffs. Ginny got a purple Pygmy Puff and named it Arnold.

Behind the scenes

  • Puffskeins may draw their inspiration from the television series Star Trek's Tribbles, as they share many of the same characteristics, such as emitting a purring or humming sound when content, and that they are both balls of fur.
  • Fanged puffskeins are mentioned as a possible answer to a question on the W.O.M.B.A.T. (first test, question 7).
