What Makes Outdoor Fabrics Different?

Outdoor fabrics are usually made from more durable textiles. Some come with UV protection to avoid fading, others are made with washable covers, water repellent properties and fabrics that are soil and stain resistant. When choosing outdoor fabrics, consider the environmental factors they will be exposed to as well as wear and tear and the fabric’s rub count.

Outdoor Fabric Insider Tip!

When purchasing outdoor fabrics, look for Olefin, Solution-dyed Acrylics or Polypropylene. The yarn in these fabrics has all the outdoor properties you need – water repellents, UV protection and soil and stain resistants.
