Velvet is a fabric known for its short pile. Traditionally woven in silk, it can now be made in a variety of fibers including cotton, viscose, rayon, or synthetic fibers. Velvet fabrics are often woven into double layers and then divided into two piles. Silk velvet is the most expensive variety and has historically been reserved for royalty.
Velvet is the pinnacle of luxury. We see it so often on the runway and it's our first thought when we think about eveningwear. Today, everyone can buy velvet fabric, which is used not only for special occasion dresses but also for everyday pieces and loungewear.
Silk velvet is often referred to as a "comfort" fabric, which means it can be used in all comfort and super soft casual wear - pajamas, activewear, slippers, leggings, and dressing gowns. For the ultimate casual look, you can't go wrong with this silky textile. Silk velvet is still favored in home furnishings because it will take more wear and tear, so less expensive fabrics are often preferred over pure silk velvet.
Silk velvet and velvet are so similar that they are often confused as the same material. Besides being made from very different fibers, the weaving process is also slightly different. In velvet weaving, the yarn is woven into loops to form a pile weave, and the small loops are then cut off to make the fabric dull. Silk velvet is actually woven on a special loom that weaves fibers of both thicknesses at the same time. The two parts are cut to create a tufted velvet effect and the layers are wound on separate rolls.
