Slightly stretchy black velvet. This fabric is soft and comfortable as well as chic. Machine wash cold/gentle and dry on low/gentle setting. This scrunchy is available in Regular, Large, Full and Jumbo sizes. I recommend the Jumbo size for your parties and nights out. The nap on velvet clings to your hair just the right amount and does not slip during the day. For detailed descriptions of sizes and fabrics, see the Sizes & Fabrics Explained page.
