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.
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.

This is a really nice fur with a background that alternates in stripes from a creamy white to tan and back again. On top of this background are the leopard spots in a taupe. This is one of the more understated animal print fake furs.
