Does your obsession with high-quality faux fur start with a favorite hooded faux fur coat and end in the bedroom with a faux fur blanket? Does the thought of wrapping yourself up in that oversized super soft and cozy blanket have you looking up the latest shows to binge? We get it. A weekend snuggled up in a faux fur blanket and our favorite show is nothing short of a dream staycation.  

Faux fur is so on-trend and coveted that designers are playing with a vast array of colors and textures to create many different products. We live in a time where people are making choices that are eco friendly and sustainable. And there is more awareness and less tolerance for animal cruelty. In fact, in January of 2023 it has become illegal to sell real fur. And almost every major fashion house has joined the stance in going cruelty-free. Something that we believe is LONG overdue. We are so grateful that people have joined our long standing mission. 

As the technology to manufacture faux fur continues to develop, designers are incorporating it more and more in their fashions. And nowadays, faux fur looks and feels just like the real thing, leaving us wondering why anyone would ever use anything else?

Thinking about updating your style, consider faux fur for fur-forward products.

3 Ways to Determine Faux Fur Quality:

3. A Realistic Looking Faux Fur is Ideal

Who wants a faux fur blanket that looks like something the cat dragged in? Quality faux fur has come a long way, (like I mentioned earlier), it's often getting confused with the real thing. Take your time to consider the look and feel of each oversized blanket before you bring it home to your den.

Faux fur is easy to clean, which is a great benefit when trying to keep your faux fur throw feeling realistic and looking good. It's as easy as a simple groom and fluff from time to time. Your Grey Wolf Faux Fur Throw will need little effort to stay well-groomed. You can't say that about your cat. Think about how much time your precious fur baby spends grooming itself.

4. Size Matters for the Best Faux Fur Blanket 

The best-size faux fur blanket is the one that fits your intent perfectly. Do you want  an oversized blanket to fit your entire bed? Or a large blanket that is perfect for snuggling up and binging movies on the couch? Knowing what you want the faux fur blanket for is an important detail in picking the best one for you.

Size matters. A tiny faux fur blanket will not serve a purpose for comfort or warmth. Even your fur-baby would prefer his faux fur dog bed to snuggling up on a tiny, low-quality blanket. (You trained him right!) Be sure the size of the faux fur throw matches what you intend to use it for.

Throw down fashion and comfort in your bedroom with an oversized blanket like a Dire Wolf Large Faux Fur Blanket  that measures 69” x 88.” Or wrap up on the couch in the Brown Chinchilla Faux Fur Throw, which is perfectly sized at 56” x 67.” Each of these oversized blankets will have you prowling your den in your pj’s and wrapped up with movies all weekend.

5. The Best Faux Fur Blanket is Built to Last

Make sure the faux fur blanket you're eyeing will last more than one season! Your faux fur décor should be resilient and ready to keep up with all that goes on in your den. Whether your wolf pack is coming over to howl for a bit, or you are bedded down with the latest episodes of “The Crown,” your favorite oversized blanket must be ready to rumble.

Faux fur is essentially made from plastic. A blend including acrylic is used to create the fibers, which makes them both sustainable and animal friendly. This environmentally friendly alternative makes it both durable and beautiful.

Resilience pertains to how well the fibers of your large blanket bounce back after running your paws through the soft faux fur. A high quality faux fur blanket with the softest feel will have resilient fibers that return to shape immediately. This is a tell-tale sign of a high-end luxury product that will stay with you for many seasons. Much longer than the life of that binge-worthy show.

6. Must Be Fun, Portable, and Ready to Party

Throw a SpiritHoods throw around your shoulders and button at the neck to stay secure. That's right. Our blankets have custom buttons transforming them into a cape! A blanket that you can wear. It doesn't get much cooler than that.

Caring for Your Favorite Faux Fur Blanket

Okay, so now that you have potentially found the perfect oversized blanket for your den. How do you take care of it so that you can cuddle up in luxe bliss for years to come? With just a little TLC, we will share how you can keep you faux fur blanket looking as fresh and luxurious as the day you bring it home.

First consider just a shake or two. Sometimes a good shaking out is all your faux fur needs to help loosen up any dirt or debris. 

If something more is needed, try a spot clean. We suggest using a very mild detergent and cold water on the desired area.

And if a full blown groom is in order, we suggest washing it by hand in cold water. Once the water runs clear, give it a tight squeeze. No wringing! The wringing will affect the fibers, just a loving and gentle squeeze is all it needs. And finally, hang it up so it can air dry. Remember to keep it out of direct sunlight and heat. Never ever use a hairdryer to dry. When it air dries, run your paws through the fur to help fluff up the fibers.

It's as simple as that! 

By choosing faux fur, you are proudly standing with a community that believes all of our Planet's creatures are entitled to a joyous and cruelty-free life.
