Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means “smooth like velvet.” Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.

Velvet - Types - Netflix

Chiffon (or transparent) velvet: Very lightweight velvet on a sheer silk or rayon chiffon base. Ciselé: Velvet where the pile uses cut and uncut loops to create a pattern. Crushed: Lustrous velvet with patterned appearance that is produced by either pressing the fabric down in different directions, or alternatively by mechanically twisting the fabric while wet. Devoré or burnout. A velvet treated with a caustic solution to dissolve areas of the pile, creating a velvet pattern upon a sheer or lightweight base fabric. Embossed: A metal roller is used to heat-stamp the fabric, producing a pattern. Hammered: This type is extremely lustrous, appears dappled, and somewhat crushed. Lyons: A densely woven, stiff, heavier-weight pile velvet used for hats, coat collars and garments. Mirror: A type of exceptionally soft and light crushed velvet. Nacré: Velvet with an effect similar to shot silk, where the pile is woven in one or more colours and the base fabric in another, creating a changeable, iridescent effect. Panne: Also a type of crushed velvet, panne is produced by forcing the pile in a single direction by applying heavy pressure. Sometimes, less frequently, called paon velvet. However, since the 1970s, “panne velvet,” as used in ordinary fabric stores, has referred to a pile knit, perhaps better called a velour, with a short pile that falls in many directions, usually of polyester. Pile-on-pile: A particularly luxurious type of velvet woven with piles of differing heights to create a pattern. Plain: Commonly made of cotton, this type of velvet has a firm hand and can be used for many purposes. Utrecht: A pressed and crimped velvet associated with Utrecht, the Netherlands. Velveteen is a type of imitation velvet. It is normally made of cotton or a combination of cotton and silk. It has a pile that is short (never more than 3mm deep), and is closely set. It has a firm hand and a slightly sloping pile. Unlike true velvet, this type has greater body, does not drape as easily, and has less sheen. Voided is deliberately woven with areas of pile-free ground (usually satin) forming the pattern. Wedding ring or ring velvet: Another term for devoré and/or chiffon velvets which are allegedly fine enough to be drawn through a ring.
