Velvet - True velvet is made of silk. Velvet is a tufted fabric with a soft texture. Some people are known to have a phobia about velvet. Looks great on a evening jacket as it reflects the light. Nothing has the colour density of velvet, the blues and blacks are as intense as any Anish Kapoor sculpture.
Vicuna - Ver-cuna - The vicuna is one of two wild South American camelids, a relative of the llama along which live in the high alpineous areas of the Andes. Vicunas produce small amounts of extremely fine wool because the animal can only be shorn every 3 years. This is one of the most expensive fabrics that exist.
