About the Crushed Velours:
This is a knitted, poly-based fabric, which, due to its tight construct, stretches significantly more with the weft but still allowing a fair amount with the warp. With its very fine mesh-like build, the crushed velour printing retains opaque quality.
The Crushed Velour fabric is quite a light textile, but has volume and retains heat well due to its soft pile. Its unique shiny fabric surface absorbs and reflects light and gives it the sheen and shimmer.
- Properties: soft, shiny, opaque
- Super bright rich and deep print, with shimmer, ripple and shine
- Highly stretchy

About the Chain Jersey
This is a pique knit, poly-blend stretch jersey.
The Pique knit creates parallel cording which runs the length of the fabric, creating a combination of indents and relief on the fabric. This cording is where the fabric gets its name Chain from.
Chain Jersey fabric is an open knit, breathable fabric. Elasticity in the fabric gives it a bounce and energy, which sits nicely on the body with a natural drape.
- Properties: Soft, Elastic, Matte, Opaque, Knitted
