How to tell fake fur and care instructions

If you want 100% faux fur, check the bottom of the fabric. Just spread the fur with your fingers and see what's inside: the fabric backing is why it's exposed.

If you see leather or animal hides, it's not the guilt-free material you're looking for.

Study the tip of the fiber. Synthetic fur is machine cut and therefore blunt, while real fur is pointed.

Burn Test - If possible, cut a few piles, place them on a fireproof item (eg, stone, ceramic slab or tile, or thick metal rods) and burn them off.

Taste the smell and look at the ashes. If it reminds you of burnt hair, the fur is natural. If the smell is more of melted plastic or paper - fur is acrylic or cotton, linen,  or rayon.

Insert the pin into the ground. If it's easy to pull through - it's faux fur, because the synthetic base has smooth fibers that are usually elastic enough to allow a metal needle to pass through them.

But if you have to work hard - the abrasion-resistant material is leather, which is a sign of 100% applied natural fur. A less reliable but still common feature of faux fur fabrics is their lighter weight.

care instructions

Hand washing with a mild detergent is the best option for any type of faux fur item.

Fully immerse the faux fur in the detergent solution. Rinse the fur with water for 10-15 minutes.

Avoid over mixing and wringing out.

Drain and rinse, rolling up with an absorbent cloth or towel to remove excess water.

Drip dry. Do not put faux fur in a dryer in a heated environment. The heat melts the faux fur fibers and causes them to fuse and dull.

Once this happens, the damage cannot be reversed.

Use a soft bristle brush to lightly brush away any matted fur and lift fibers.
