Here is some really cool history about Faux Fur Day:
Faux Fur Friday, observed on the first Friday in December, provides a stylish way to wear and buy faux fur.
Also known as fake fur, the textile made its debut in 1929. Initially made from alpaca wool, faux fur increased in quality as synthetic fibers became available. The fibers not only allowed for more variety and texture, but they also provided warmth. While the neo fur didn’t breath as well as animal fur, nor did it insulate as well, it lasted longer. Animal fur required refrigeration to avoid degrading.
Whether you call it fake, imitation or simulated, faux fur has found a place in fashion. Designers use it as an accent on clothing. They also create decor and entire ensembles. Faux fur comes in every color imaginable, too.
HOW TO OBSERVE #FauxFurFriday
Throw a faux fur style show or shop for a faux fur deal. Wrap yourself in a soft, furry throw or poncho. Add some faux fur to a denim jacket or jazz up pillow in your room. Share your faux fur secrets and use #FauxFurFriday to post on social media.
We have prepared a FAUX FUR Friday Celebration
of our own, cozying up to various articles in our household!
We have a particular attachment to Carol's TIGER hat. Now that might be because we ARE tigers...
This is one hat that I allow Paprika to share (see below). I am not usually this generous though.
Paprika here. This is NOT Peaches' tiger hat. It is OURS. That means it is also mine. My pillow in this case. Peaches better not bother me now.
Hoping you will all enjoy Faux Fur Day with or WITHOUT your fur babies...
