Finest velvet for DIY!

Let's just tell it like it is: Velvet has a superior surface. The very soft evenly distributed ridges repeat rigorously throughout the fabric add elegance and just the right retro feel to your project.

Baby velvet is a soft woven material with short pile and 21 wales (hence the fine narrow ridges). It is a tough material that is suitable for clothing and DIY projects for the home.


Using baby velvet for children's clothes - and much more

The narrow ridges look great on children's clothes, where they really stand out. Whether it's used for trousers, jumpers, a spencer or a small suit - it's entirely up to your designs and preferences. Whatever you choose, you'll always get a great result.

But baby velvet is also great for home sewing projects - from cushions to decorations and doorstops. It's a great look and fits in well with Scandinavian style.


Velvet is sold by the metre, so simply order the length you need. The width is 140 cm and the fabric shrinks about 6% in the wash.

Please remember to use the right needles - we recommend a size 80 universal needle.


What is Wales?

Wales indicates the width of the raised ridges in the velvet that defines the velvety texture of the fabric. A low Wales indicates wide ridges i.e. less ridges per inch. On the other hand, a high Wales indicates narrow ridges. For example velvet with 4 Wales per inch has wide ridges and will feel heavier, while velvet with 21 Wales per inch has narrow ridges and will feel finer.
