How to create a fuzzy/fluffy material for a towel?

Hey guys,

I’ve been researching for a while but can’t find anything precise.
How do you create something like this in UE5?
Are there any tutorial or examples around?


Hey there @Hype_Ldbg! Welcome to the community! So generally if you’re trying to fake a texture like that, all you really need is a good texture + normal map setup should be fine. However if you want, you could take a look at Quixel’s materials in the bridge, they have tons of materials to take reference from.
