Acrylic

Acrylic is a synthetic fiber made from a polymer called acrylonitrile. It’s a popular choice for many home textiles due to its versatility and functionality.

One of the key benefits of acrylic is its soft, wool-like feel. This warmth and comfort come at a more accessible price than wool, making it an attractive alternative.

Acrylic fibers are also known for their strength and resilience. They resist abrasion, pilling (forming fabric balls), and fading, ensuring your home textiles maintain their good looks for extended periods.

Applications of Acrylic in Home Textiles

  • Throws and blankets: Acrylic’s warmth and softness make it ideal for cozy throws and blankets.
  • Upholstery: Acrylic fabrics offer durability and stain resistance for furniture applications.
  • Rugs and carpets: Acrylic’s stain resistance and easy cleaning make it a practical choice for high-traffic areas.
  • Curtains and blinds: Acrylic can be woven into lightweight or heavier fabrics for curtains and blinds, offering affordability and color variety.
