What is velour?
Velour is a fabric that can be woven or knitted. For velour the loops has been cut into hair. Fabric with un-cut loops is called terry.
Why do we have a 100% Organic cotton velour?
1/ We dislike synthetic materials.
2/ The GOTS standards does not allow us to use more then 8% of polyester in a product. For a polyester blend velour we would need 18- 24 % of polyester. With polyester we would get a thinner, smoother velour. This velour would have a great shine and a synthetic hand feel. But this kind of velour is not an option for us.
3/ We are proud to have 100% organic cotton velour. A 100% cotton velour is more heavy than a synthetic blend velour. The hair of a 100% cotton velour is shorter compared to a synthetic blend velour.
The look and hand feel has more in common with terry than a synthetic blend velour.
When you remove the velour garment from the plastic bag there might be creases from the folding. Shake it out, put it on a hanger or put the garment on and the crease will be gone. A 100% cotton velour makes long lasting garments. Washing inside out will also re-fluff any deeper creases from ironing in the factories before packaging, you can also do a small cycle on COOL in the tumble dryer to accelerate this.
What are the dye/print options for velour?
- Solid velour. The fabric is dyed in one solid colour.
- Printed with Bleach. The fabric is dyed in one solid colour and then printed with bleach (This is not an option we approve).
- Printed velour. The hair of the velour is all over printed. Bottom is un-dyed. This is the option we have chosen.
