Also known as Velveto, velveteen
Velvet is made with vertical yarn, and velveteen is made with horizontal yarn, but otherwise, these two textiles are made with largely the same processes. Velveteen, however, is often mixed with normal cotton yarn, which reduces its quality and changes its texture.
They are both multi-layered fabric with dense piles that are soft to the touch and the threads in velvet fabric are always bunched closely together.
Recommended care: Hand wash or cold wash.
