A cotton cloth made in a similar way to corduroy: extra wefts are floated over a plain or twill weave, which are then cut and brushed to produce a very short-cut, dense pile and a smooth back.

Similar in appearance to velvet, but tighter and without the problems that a definite pile brings, velveteen is much easier to handle, and is used for curtains and upholstery.
