If the yarn is the same thickness and gauge, you can use it. The best place to compare yarns is at www.yarndex.com .

If you know the name of the velvet yarn you can get information on it and compare it to the suede yarn.

For a pillow, though, it's not that critical that the gauge be exactly the same. :shrug:
