| What is velour?

A soft, cotton fabric woven with an extra yarn that forms loops called pile. The loops are sheared to a shorter length on one side giving sportswear, evening wear and loungewear a decorative sheen. Velour differs from velvet in that velour is a knit fabric with natural stretch, while velvet is woven, and thus does not naturally stretch. Velour is used for clothing and home decor, such as tracksuits, sweatsuits, jumpsuits, dresses, pants, hoodies, pillows, and blankets.
