Cotton Knit Velour is a slightly fuzzy fabric with a nap and texture you can feel. Soft and plush, cuddly and cozy with a light stretch, it is a luscious material ideally suited for making stuffed animals and bunting style dolls in which the clothing doubles as the body. Also used for treasure bags, cloaks and clothing for dolls and people. For a pleasing feel be sure to lay out your pattern so the nap lies flat when you brush your hand down the doll from head to toe.
