A synthetic fibre that accepts and holds colours fast, and weaves into a fabric that is easy to wash, dries quickly and resists creases. Used singly or mixed in with others, acrylic textiles are suitable for any furnishings that need to be regularly machine-washed: commercially, for outside use, and for indoor sheer curtains, which can be washed and immediately re- hung.

In inner cities and to a less degree all urban areas, sheer curtains and blinds catch so much traffic grime that monthly, and sometimes weekly washing is essential; acrylic and polyester voiles are the only ones that can handle this level of wear with any degree of longevity.
