Rated 3 out of 5 by MinkyMeal The color is more pinky than red
What really caught my eye about this fabric where the deep darks and the bright, crimson highlights. Sadly, in person this fabric only has one of those. This velvet certainly has the deep darks, more so than pretty much any other velvet offered here. However, the brights are not the red that's pictured. The title gives a better sense of the color: wine. The highlights have more pink than whats pictured.
I would take a picture, but I ran into the same issue it seems the Fabric team did: the white balance on my camera phone was such that the highlights did appear more red than they actually are.
So if you're in love with the look of this velvet, order a swatch first (which is, of course, just good form in any fabric buying deal!). Overall, I would recommend this velvet for its stretch and its look, but not its feel.
