Faux furs are not only used for clothing. Also, used for some fashion accessories, stuffed animals, and some types of home decorations such as bedding, pillows, throws, and faux fur blanket.

Acrylic polymers are chemicals coming from air, coal, petroleum, water, and limestone. Secondary monomers are also added for improving the absorption of dyes into the acrylic fibers. Modacrylic polymers are made from monomers such as vinyl chloride and acrylonitrile.

Both modacrylics and acrylics are very useful when manufacturing because they are light weight and springy. They are also resistant to soot, heat, sunlight, and smoke. They also are resistant to mildews and are also susceptible from any insect attacks. These materials can dry quickly because it is less absorbent.
