What is "Micro Suede" - Definition & Explanation

Usually a nylon/polyester blended yarn that is spun into a microfiber like fabric. It is then brushed twice to achieve the suede touch. The first brushing is applied before dyeing and the second brushing is considered a 'suede' process which actually is brushed with pins. Then the fabric is dyed and sheared which gives the final suede look and touch.
