The fabrics are one of the essential elements in the decoration of the home and a good choice will help you create warm and welcoming environments for the winter.

What are the best fabrics for winter?
If you are thinking of renovating your home textiles, here are some ideas to choose the best fabrics for winter.
The most advisable for winter is to opt for enveloping fabrics that transmit warmth and offer excellent performance. Wool meets all these requirements, it is also a natural fiber very resistant to the passage of time and with which we can wrap ourselves in the cold, as it is an excellent thermal insulator.
The only drawback of wool is that it is a fabric very sensitive to dirt and is somewhat difficult to clean. However, today it is possible to find this fabric mixed with other natural and synthetic fibers that give it extra properties and facilitate its maintenance.
Velvet is the fabric of winter par excellence. Thanks to its soft texture, elegance and adaptability it is one of the most used fabrics for upholstery. However, it is also a delicate fabric that requires some care, something that can throw us back when choosing it for our upholstery.
In case it is made of natural fibers, velvet is more resistant and durable. In contrast, velvet made of polyester fibers usually incorporates other technical elements that help upholstery maintenance, such as anti-wrinkle or stain-resistant components. These properties make velvet cleaning much easier and increase its resistance to rubbing and abrasion.
