Fashion: Fastener
medium strength velcro   (+1)  [vote for, against]
For when you want stuff to stick together but only a little.

Example of how this might be used is for blanket capes, which would benefit from being held on, but need to look like you dont care if they stay on.

Just to show I had actually thought the concept though, the baked ice of the velcro could be made of a softer material. This wold accomplish two things: 1) Softer barbs less successfully interlock with the looped side (causing medium strength. 2) it wold ensure the wearer feels no scratchiness on the barbed side.

So, kind of the post-it note approach to velcro ?

// Velcro clone // The problem with those is the change in holding power as it wears out quickly. This idea is for a consistently weak fastener.

would so love quiet velcro! maybe if you twist it in a certain direction it releases silently?
