Velvet is a woven fabric with a short dense pile which gives it a luxurious soft feel. Velvets have a good amount of drape and are perfect for sewing yourself a dress, skirt, fitted trousers or a jacket. Velvet does not have a natural stretch but can have elastane woven into the fabric to give it some stretch whereas velour is a knit fabric and has a natural stretch to it, it is a plush fabric making it perfect for sewing yourself a jumper or trousers.
Sequin fabrics normally have individual sequins sewn onto a mesh base. These sequins are normally made out of plastic and therefore aren't biodegradable.
Our velvet & velour fabric & sequin fabric is sold and listed in half metre increments.
