Velvet is distinguished by its extremely soft feel. It can be made of cotton, silk, viscose or polyester and spandex. It can only be sewn once; the stitches removed pierce the tissue. Sew preferably with a fine needle in the direction of the grain. Iron inside out, right side up on an ironing board. Some even advise not to iron at all. Perfect for making clothes, fashion accessories, decor or furnishings.
