Fur Gauntlets can be upgraded at a workbench with Leather, however they do not benefit from any Smithing perks. This means the gauntlets cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted items and/or blacksmithing potions to fortify Smithing.
