What You Need To Know When Buying Faux Fur

What’s important to think about when picking a coat made from faux fur?

Faux Fur

Since these are all coats made of faux fur, let’s take a closer look at this type of material.

Faux fur is a type of fabric made to look and feel like animal fur and give similar warmth. Essentially, it’s made of synthetic polymeric fibres. These include polyester, acrylic, and modacrylic, which are all forms of plastic.

The best quality faux fur feels as soft as real fur. You can also choose between all the colours in the rainbow since synthetic materials are not limited by colours in nature!

How Do You Distinguish Between Real Fur and Faux Fur?

Now, real fur and faux fur often look very similar. Usually, you can tell what the clothes are made of by reading the clothing label. However, there are also some other methods you can use for telling them apart.

If you check the base of the fur, look to see if it’s skin or fabric. Push the fur apart and check what kind of material the hairs are fastened to. If you see threadwork from which the “hairs” emerge, you can be pretty sure that’s faux fur.

You can also check the tips of the hairs to look for tapering. Animal hairs tend to taper into a fine point, while faux fur “hair” ends in more of a straight-across cut. Use a magnifying glass with good lighting, or hold the hairs up to a white surface for a closer look.
