Velvet is one of our favourite fabrics simply for the softness, rich colours and textures it comes in. We have 3 different types of velvet we work with! Ribbed velvet (the Chels, Ribbin, Daisy, Morgane) Soft Velvet (the Mai, Jade, Penelope & more) and Stretch Velvet (the Angelique, Cindy, Margo & More). Velvet is woven on a special loom that weaves two thicknesses of the material at the same time. The two pieces are then cut apart to create the pile effect, and the two lengths of fabric are wound on separate take-up rolls. This complicated process meant that velvet was expensive to make before industrial power looms became available, and well-made velvet remains a fairly costly fabric.
Keep in mind due to its ribbed surface, our Ribbed Velvet XXL Scrunchies are much heavier than our other materials.
