    The fabulous San Francisco four story Britex Fabrics store is featuring velvet in their newsletter and has a particularly clear definition.

    " . . .visit the second floor of our brick-and-mortar store to see a selection of velvets in cotton, silk/rayon, viscose, rayon/acetate, poly lycra and more (the term 'velvet' refers to the structure of the fabric rather than the fiber; the pile is created by raised loops)."
