Velvet is a fabric characterized by having a short and dense pile. It is produced in solid colours or with prints, sometimes with an admixture of elastane, which gives it elasticity. It is pleasant, soft, smooth to the touch and is slightly elastic, stretching across its width. Velvet fabrics have a soft feel, a subtle sheen, are durable and blend well. They are slightly stretchy, pile-like and shiny. The fabric does not need to be cleaned, it does not fray.
Use velvet for sewing suits, jackets and coats. You can also use it to make tracksuits, jackets, waistcoats, sweatshirts, etc.
It is also suitable for sewing home textiles for decorative purposes. Decorative cushions add the right touch of luxury to your home.
Good advice is always useful. If we want to clean the velvet, we take a piece of another velvet on it. Wet it slightly with water and wipe the fabric against the fur. This way, even the pressed-in areas will disappear. Velvet will also clean well with fine dried salt. Just sprinkle it on and brush it well at the end.
