has anyone seen any viscose lycra blend velvet or do you have any good idea who might sell it?
I'm in the UK but willing to buy from the USA if need be.
FFC have some but only in grey and i think it might be a typo anyway!
Ideally looking for purple or other jewel colours.

thanks in advance

I might have seen some pink--nice pink comparable to a jewel tone but not sure if it was stretch. I'll check next time I'm in town and let you know.

Viscose velvet is very difficult to find now...silk velvet is easier to locate!




Tissu Fabrics in your neck of the woods has gorgeous poly/lycra velvets galore.

I will check my usual suspects though to see if I can find anything in viscose/lycra.

Nope. Found some nice silk/lycra velvets, and lots of the poly/lycra, including extremely high-quality (and expensive!) stuff, but no rayon/viscose at all.
