Velour is sometimes mistaken for velvet because of its plushness and soft sheen. But unlike velvet, velour is an ideal fabric for sleepwear and robes. The knit and the dense pile make velour robes ultra-soft, with some stretch and ease of movement. Velour can be made of cotton or synthetic materials and velour robes are available in a wide range of styles. Whatever color, length or style you prefer, wrapping yourself in a velour robe feels like stepping into a cloud--soft, enveloping and luxurious.
