Rated 3 out of 5 by MinkyMeal Not very soft, but very stretchy!
This fabric has two described qualities in its website info: a soft nap and a stretch. To me, this hits 1 of 2 of those: the fabric lives up to its name as being very stretchy. This would be good for maybe some leggings. (As a matter of fact, I have some velvet leggings made of a material similar to this.)
But as for softness, I would not call this "ultra soft." It's ok in one direction, but very scaly-feeling in every other. Personally, I was looking for some nicer velvet and I ordered a swatch of pretty much everything that Fabric.com offered in my color and was disappointed to find that none of them really stacked up to what I was seeking. Oh well!
Overall, this fabric is good for the velvet look while having a great stretch, but don't order this looking for softness.
