What is Chinchilla Fabric?

What is Chinchilla Fabric?
  • Chinchilla cloth is a kind of thick, spongy woolen overcoat fabric that has a long nap and has been rubbed into a curly, nubby finish. 
  • Wool or wool blends are used in its production, and cotton may be woven into the warp to increase the fabric's tensile strength.


  • Chinchilla rodents were persecuted to the point of extinction for their fur during the last few years of the 19th century, which led to their eventual demise. 
  • Prior to that time, accessories and elegant outfits were often made from the skin and hair of animals
  • During this time period, chinchilla hair was used in fashion projects by a lot of designers and industry professionals.

What makes it stand out

Care Instructions

  • It is recommended that you wash it by hand or in a dry cleaning machine rather than putting it through the rigors of the washing machine. 
  • You should make every effort to ensure that its exposure to the sun is kept to a minimum in order to prevent the formation of yellow spots in concentrated regions. 
  • When packing it, be sure to use bags with straps, since fur hair is prone to falling out. 
  • Make sure it doesn't become wet or soaked.
