Velboa is a low pile, faux fur fabric that is especially versatile for crafters. It’s tough-wearing and is available in many solid colors as well as patterns. Blankets, pet products, baby clothes, costumes and stuffed animal toys are just some of the many possible uses for velboa in crafting.

This fabric is sometimes called "velboa skin" when used for making stuffed animal toys. Not only is it suitable for a realistic animal skin look because it is a low nap fake fur, but its strength also makes it an ideal fabric for this purpose. For example, velboa is the perfect choice for covering a child's rocking horse toy as it can both look like a horse's hide and stand up to the use of being climbed on frequently.

Costumes are another great use for velboa. It can be made to look like suede, such as for a Pocahontas costume, or for just about any animal the imagination can bring to life. Scraps of the material from larger project can be used to make the small costume pieces, such as ears or a tail.

Velboa is considered a safe fabric choice for infants, and is very soft. Baby clothing, such as little coats, are a popular way to use the material, and it can also be used to make infant sleeping bags.

Pets like velboa's softness and owners like its hard-wearing, yet attractive appeal. Many pet beds and pet toys take advantage of these qualities, and items made from it make great gifts for pets and pet owners too.

Velboa blankets are fast and fun to make as gifts for babies, children and adults. They are a very welcome gift as they are soft and strong. Most people find that it's easy to find a color or pattern suitable for nearly any purpose, as the fabric is available in all kinds of designs. Many shades of solid colors are made, as are a range of patterns from florals, to animal prints, to graphic designs. Velboa is also often available in textures such as ribbed or embossed.
