If you have a pet and like more luxurious fabrics, you may have to settle for using them as window coverings and tapestries that are well out of reach. Textiles with loose weaves and nubby loops are highly susceptible to snags, and are difficult to repair if damaged. Here are some fabrics to avoid if you have pets in the home.
Chenille is very durable and soft, and tends to hide dirt well, but the pile is uneven and easy to snag on cat claws.
Silk is very delicate, so animals will destroy it quickly. Velvet is also very luxurious, but easy to damage and very difficult to clean.
Tweed is like a magnet for pet hair. It becomes embedded in the rough surface, and is almost impossible to clean. Pet claws can easily snag and tear the fabric, too, so it’s best avoided.
Choosing textiles that are darker in color, patterned, evenly textured and with a tight weave work best in homes with pets. Keep this information in mind when choosing fabrics and furniture for your home.
