Fabulous Fabrics: Velvet

Definition: a soft fabric, having a dense pile and a plain underside.

I'm not sure how velvet became the traditional Christmas fabric, but its great for cold weather and its rich texture is perfect for any holiday party.  Usually found in jackets and party dresses this time of year, velvet can last quite a while if taken good care of.

How to care for it: Store carefully as folding can damage the pile of the velvet.  For best results, follow the care label for your particular clothing item or take to a dry cleaners.
