Frequently Asked Questions

Fake or real?

These are all fake furs. They are all synthetic. None of them are real fur or were ever on a real animal. Many of them have names of real animals but that is only because they remind us of that animal.

Handling and Care of Fake Fur

To maintain the look and feel of the fake fur it is best to hand-wash and drip dry them. Agitation and heat are your worst enemy when handling fake furs.

  • After soaking in cold or luke warm water with gentle detergent and swishing around to clean, remove the piece of fabric.
  • You can roll it in a towel to absorb the extra water.
  • Find a place to hang it with good ventilation and fluff it up with your fingers a bit if it is a longer pile. With too much agitation the longer fake furs have a tendency to want knot or tangle up or become matted so pay close attention to this-- especially if you are hanging it over something like a shower rod. Pay attention to it like you would soup on a stove. Every once in a while flip it over and run your hands through it rather than just leaving it until it is dry.


If it is a small piece you could put in in the dryer on FLUFF/AIR. NO HEAT.

If it is a larger piece or garment you could also dry clean it. Make sure to tell the cleaners that it is fake fur so they use the approprite solution and technique.

If you just need to clean a spot you can do that with some cold water and a rag.

Meter vs Yard and how to order

Fake fur is sold by the running yard, or portion of the yard.  A yard is 3 feet or 36". If you prefer metric measurements, a yard is 91cm.

The minimum cut is 1/2 yard.   To order fake fur, please use the decimal form.

fraction inches cm decimal
1/4 9 22 .25
1/3 12 30 .33
1/2 18 45 .5
2/3 24 60 .67
3/4 27 68 .75


Custom work

We do not manufacture the fake furs. At this time, it is not possible for us to print custom designs or get colors or patterns that are not shown on our website. If you are trying to match something you can always send us a picture in an email or send us a swatch and we can let you know if we have something that is close to what you are looking for.


We offer swatches as a way to help you make a decision. A swatch is a small piece of fabric that will allow you to feel the texture of the fabric and see the fabric in living color. On a fabric with lots of colors you may not see all of the colors but you will get the vibe. The swatches are about 1" x 3". We do not offer large swatches. With each swatch order you will receive a coupon code for a future order that will be valid for 30 days from your purchase date.

It's hip to be square... and here are 3 graphic options for you . All are 60" wide.

  • Checkered Fox-- 1" long, silky smooth white fake fur with black base.  The white rectangles are 3.5in wide and 5in tall.  There is about an inch of soft short black fur in between the rows.
  • Checkered Mink-- warm, medium brown fake fur that is about .5" long.  There is a strip of darker brown very short fur that is about .25" in between the checks but because of the way this fur lays, you barely see it
  • Checkered Kitty- The blocks are about 2" wide by 3" tall in a very soft, short black fur. The longer tan hairs that are surrounding are about 1 1/4" long. The tan border is about an inch in between the blocks and 1 1/2" in between the rows.  The rows of blocks in this fur are off-set so they don't form a grid like the other 2.


  • 60" wide.
  • Suggested care: dry clean or hand wash cold/ line dry
