If you’re like us, you can’t wait to pull out your faux fur fashion for wearing all fall and winter long. What happens when something lands on your favorite faux fur vest or your beanie’s furry accents? Then you need to know how to wash faux fur. Good news! Faux fur, teddy bear jackets, coats and fluffy jackets are typically constructed with acrylic, mod-acrylic, nylon, rayon, and polyester – all of which are washable fabrics. You can identify a garment made with faux fur by referencing the sewn-in care label or noting the following distinctions: a woven or knitted backside, thick pile if medium to long length pile, and flexible and lightweight.
Follow this how-to, and keep your washable and non-washable faux fur looking new for years.
