A great fabric to use in a den or family room. I really love this inexpensive fabric because it reminds me of an old favorite college sweatshirt. This fabric is a synthetic chenille with a varied colour that helps to hide spots and stains.
This fabric is rated dry clean but you could try washing the sample if you want to use it for a removable washable covering or a slipcover. It is polyester which generally holds up well to washing. I would leave it out of the dryer, though, it will dry fast and you avoid all the static.
Polyester chenilles tend to be non absorbent, and spills sit on the surface, so wiping clean with a damp rag and some spot remover will go a long way.
