What is Velveteen ? 

  • Velveteen, in textiles, fabric with a short, dense pile surface and a smooth back, usually made of cotton and resembling velvet.
  • It is made by the filling-pile method, in which the plain or twill weave is used as a base and extra fillings are floated over four or five warps.
  • After weaving, the floats are cut, and their ends are brushed up to form a smooth pile about one-eighth inch long .

Care Instructions 

  • Velveteen needs to be pre-washed to prevent it from shrinking.
  • Wash your velveteen fabric using a washing machine. However, it’s best to note that the typical recommendation is to dry clean your velveteen, so you can do that if you want to be safe.
  • Never dry your fabric through line drying or hanging it on a ledge. This is because any crease or ridge formed while you dry your velveteen will become a permanent marking on its pile. Therefore, you will need to spread your velveteen when drying it or hang it using a padded hanger.
  • Lastly, you can also dry it slightly using a dryer until it is only damp, then you can hang it on a hanger or lay it carefully on a flat surface to complete the drying process.
  • Using a standard ironing approach can destroy your pile fabric beyond repair, making it lose its luxurious and smooth texture.
  • Iron the velveteen by placing it face down onto a clean towel , like Terry towel.
