One Year Guarantee and Practicality/­Durability Rating

Our NEW Practicality and Durability Index for Faux Fur Throws – together with our One YEAR guarantee!

We’re often asked questions about how suitable our various faux fur fabrics are for various household uses. So we have now decided that all our throws will carry a “Practicality and Durability” index – the more ticks on a scale of 1 to 3, the more durable and practical the item is.

Other sellers do not provide this information (let’s just see how quickly they follow!), but do not assume because of this that their goods will always be suitable for whatever use you have planned. We believe that giving you this information upfront will help you make the most informed buying decisions. We recognise that, in these times, spending even on small luxuries should represent good value for money.

So, providing that you honestly follow the guidelines shown below, we will offer an unprecedented One Year guarantee* on all throws purchased from this site (we truly believe that our goods will last for much longer than this - provided that the guidelines below are followed).

Faux Fur Throws - Practicality and Durability Tick Rating

tick tick tick

Usually the shorter-pile denser fabrics. Suitable for machine washing with care, dry cleaning, or localised spot cleaning with damp cloth. Can be used for most domestic purposes, on bed or sofa for daily sitting on/lying on, in car or for travel/camping, even OK for dogs and cats who will love them!

tick tick

Usually the medium-pile fabrics. Can be machine washed with great care or dry cleaned. Use as a bed decoration or occasional bed cover, a sofa decoration, occasionally for sitting on.


Reserved for the most delicate of fabrics, usually the longer haired or very fine. Dry clean only. Use only for decorative purposes e.g. bed runner. We're sorry if the one you like is in this category, but remember, granny would have been horrified if the kids were allowed to jump all over her real mink coat all day long.....!

* guarantee runs for 1 year from date of despatch. We may replace item or refund at our discretion. Subject to return of goods and inspection by our qualified staff. Washing or drying at too high a temperature has telltale signs and claims will be rejected, as will wear claims for fabric types unsuited for regular sitting on. We will not guarantee items which are used at any time by pets. This guarantee is offered in addition to your statutory rights.
