Fur collars, cushions, throws, lining, carnival outfits, cuddly toys. Faux fur is increasingly being used in the production of clothing and interior decorations – and for good reason, because faux fur can hardly be distinguished from the real thing. It has a luxurious look and feel and is produced responsibly. If sustainable and conscious choices are important to you, faux fur is what you have to opt for. Fakefurshop.com is happy to tell you more about faux fur.
What is faux fur?
Faux fur is – as the name would suggest – a wonderful alternative to real fur. Faux fur aims to imitate real fur in the best way possible. Faux fur is machine made of artificial fibres and yarns and can be used in a wide variety of applications. Faux fur is easier to cut and sew and is more affordable than real fur. But how is faux fur produced, you may wonder. Faux fur is available in different types, including knitted faux fur, made in a sliver knit. Faux fur types are also produced on ‘boa knit’ or ‘double raschel’ machines and there is also a woven variety. Faux fur is usually produced of synthetic materials such as modacrylic, acrylic and polyester. The yarns and fibres used are very fine to imitate real fur. A layman can hardly see the difference.
