Velvet is synonymous with luxury. It feels like no other fabric; very soft, yet somewhat textured. It also reflects light in a unique way, varying the perceived color of the fabric from light to dark, depending on the orientation of the fibers. This means that if you get a green velvet bedspread for example, the shades of it will vary between light and dark green, accentuating the fabric’s texture.
I’m not sure how soft this would feel, but I think it looks nice:
