Velvet fabric can be made from different fibers. Cotton, rayon, and silk are common fibers used. However, velvet can also be made from linen or wool. Silk velvet is especially soft and shimmery. It is also more fluid than velvet that is synthetic and made from rayon. Velvet made from rayon will still have a strong sheen. Velveteen is cotton velvet that doesn’t have as much sheen but is the most durable and strongest form of velvet. A special loom is used to weave the materials that are subsequently cut apart, piled, and wound on separate take-up rolls. The complicated process to create velvet often makes velvet a costly fabric. However, advances in process of making velvet have made it less complicated to make and easier to clean.
