Its A Mad Pad Fab Clad Fake Fur World

Real fur belongs on real animals. We all agree on that, but animal fur is one of God’s great gifts to mankind. It’s warm and soft. It’s luxurious and beautiful. So how can enlightened animal loving beings in the 21st century show their appreciation for the beauty of fur? Go faux, of course!

Fake fur comes in a huge variety of patterns and colors. You can find leopard, cheetah, chinchilla, mink and fox. There are also fun furs in solid colors ranging from black and white to orange and lavender. They come zig-zagged or two toned, longer pile or shorter pile. The problem isn’t variety. It’s availability. Good faux fur is hard to find in your average fabric store. Upper end fabric stores in your area might carry it if you’re in a major metropolitan area.

Luckily, we have the internet where you can find (and buy) just about anything. Try searching online for “fake fur fabric” or “fake leopard fabric”. The more specific you can be in your search words, the better. If you’re looking to buy fake fur products, like a mink throw or handbag, use those search words. Once you find a vendor that you like, you might have to hold yourself back.

You could turn your lair into a jungle. Toss a chinchilla throw over the chaise lounge or snuggle on a cheetah blanket in front of the fire. Picture a leopard comforter covered in fox pillows or a fur upholstered ottoman or headboard. Attach a thick backing and you’ll have a fur rug.

You can wear fake fur as well. If you’ve always dreamed of a mink coat, you can have a fake one for a few hundred dollars, which is practically nothing compared to the real thing. You can also find fake fur handbags, capes, jackets and hats. There are scarves and gloves, fur trimmed collars and cuffs, as well as fur items for little girls.

If you’re talented, you can make all of these items yourself. You can easily sew fake fur on an average sewing machine. The worst part about sewing fake fur is cutting it. Just keep your dust-buster close by. Worried about keeping faux fur clean? Most acrylic fake furs are machine washable in cold water. Let them air dry, and you’re done. Never put any fake fur item in a dryer.

Fake fur is just plain fabulous. It’s easy on the eyes and soft to the touch. It looks incredibly real and is easy to keep clean. Since real fur is out of the question, it’s great to have the next best thing.
