Cotton Knit Velour is a slightly fuzzy fabric with a nap and texture you can feel. 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.
Used in the following Joy's Waldorf Dolls patterns: The clothing/body of Bunting Babies, Bright Eyes Baby and Star Child. The clothing for Baby Jess and Brother/Sister dolls.
80% cotton /20% polyester. The polyester is on the "wrong" side of the fabric and is needed for strength.
11 oz. per linear yard.
Fat quarter: 18 x 30 inches
Yard: 60 inches wide
Discontinued colors: Grape, Root Beer
Ordering multiple yards of the same color? Please, tell us if you prefer 1 yard pieces or continuous yards.
Sewing tip: For optimal results, cut velour with sharp fabric scissors which are used only on fabric. Any challenges in machine sewing this fabric are remedied by using a machine needle designed for knits or a universal needle. Be careful to not let the seam be too small or the material will get sucked into the bobbin case.

Oh this velour is just the softest, sturdiest, most beautiful, fabric, and the colors are stunning-so rich and lovely.
Service was excellent and very fast too!
Really appreciated being able to buy fat quarters for smaller dolls.

I loved working with this cotton velour for my star child dolls. Soft, plush, and vibrant colors. and I like that you can buy smaller amounts and thus more colors to try.
