Get what you love.
There are so many fabrics on the market today to choose from and I have read other recommendations on what is best for a slipcover but in my opinion it all comes down to what you like.
Choose a fabric that you will like to look at and live with everyday.
Yes some materials may be better for slip-covering than others (Ideally a cotton or cotton blend is the best) but I have made covers from very thin to very thick fabrics, loose weave and tight weave and everything in between. I can usually make it work no matter what you choose.
If you find a fabric that you love but won't work for what you need as a slipcover you can always use that fabric for throw pillows or accents in the room.
Need more input on how to decide which fabrics are right for you? Most of the fabric stores or manufacturers can guide you in what fabrics are best for washing or dry cleaning or feel free to contact me and I will help you decide free of charge.
So I say go ahead and get something you love and we will figure out how to make it work for you.
