How To Wash Velvet Fur

I recently made a costume out of a special faux fur called “velvet fur”. I ran a scrap of fabric though the washing machine in cold water with some other laundry and it came out okay. (It was labeled dry clean only which is why I tested a scrap first.) But when I washed the costume with liquid fabric softener it ruined the texture of the fur. (I didn’t put it in the dryer.) I tired re-washing it without fabric softener but it still looks bad. Is there anything else I can try to restore this costume? Thank You for your help.

Shawn: I sorry, but you should have followed the directions on the label. If it says Dry Clean, then DRY CLEAN.
Now, consider remaking the costume or wear it the way it is.
Have a Happy Halloween and Good Luck, Andy
