I'm thinking of buying some faux fur soon and was wondering if any of you knew how to determine the quality of faux fur. I'm going to the Dongdaemun crafts market in Seoul. To give you an idea of what it's like, think of a craft store (like JoAnn, Michaels, or a local craft store). Remove all the crafts that don't relate to textiles/clothing projects. Merge that with Costco's wholesale and warehouse aspects. Then merge that with a street fair's multitudes of different vendors. Put that in a 7 story (plus one basement) building the size of a city block. The aisles should be about 1m or less in width for most of the building. Organize the floors by what is being sold (yarns and threads, fabrics, buttons, etc) and then group vendors with similar wares together on the appropriate floors. There is some faux fur in this market and I'll be going back to check the prices against what I could buy in the US. But I want to make sure that it's a decent quality before I buy it. So is there any way to tell the quality of faux fur by looking it over? And I do know the Korean word for faux fur (it's 인조모피 'injomopi'), so I'll be able to verify that it isn't real fur. ^^
