Futon Slipcovers and Pillows - Outdoor Fabrics
Outdoor Futon Covers and Pillow Cases
Owning a futon is owning a piece of versatile furniture that can be used in any room. Why not outside as well. There are futon slipcovers and pillows designed for precisely that. These outdoor fabrics are made from a wide variety of synthetic fibers, polyester, acrylic, and even cotton blends, and woven textiles that undergo a chemical treatment during manufacturing. This process allows them to repel water and resist soiling, rot, and mildew. These make them ideal for not just outdoor use, but they are also ideal for high traffic areas with children and pets.
There are a few different types of outdoor fabrics, those being; Solution-dyed 100% acrylic; Acrylic-coated 100% polyester and poly-cotton blends. Each have their ideal uses. Solution-dyed acrylic is by far the most versatile as it has all of the properties of the outdoor fabrics, but is not stiff or hard to the touch, making it the perfect choice for slipcover fabric.
The acrylic coated fabric polyester has been primarily used in the automobile and boating industries as protective covers because they are waterproof,rather than water-resistant. The coating however makes them much stiffer than the dyed acrylic, not an ideal choice for a slipcover.
Owning an outdoor futon slipcover with pillows can add a whole new dimension of use for your futon. Not only can you use your futon as a couch and a bed, but with an outdoor cover, you can now use it on the patio or as poolside furniture.
