Chenille Yarn was first introduced in France in the late 1700s, and it’s been used around the world ever since. Chenille means “caterpillar” in French, and the yarn’s texture is reminiscent of a caterpillar’s soft, fuzzy body.

This yarn is made by twisting short lengths of fabric or thread (called piles) tightly onto a core to create a dense, plush yarn. The piles can be made of various materials, including cotton, rayon, and silk.

Chenille Yarn is known for its heat retention. Since it’ll naturally keep you warm, it’s a great choice for blankets, sweaters, and other cozy items.

Chenille Yarn is a versatile fiber. You can use it in a variety of crafts, including:

- Knitting
- Finger knitting
- Crocheting
- Macraweaving
- Weaving

If you’re using a craft that requires a needle or hook, remember that Chenille Yarn is thick and chunky. You may need to use a larger size tool than you normally do.

Typically, a 6-7 mm knitting needle and a 6.5 mm crochet hook work well, though you’ll want to check the label on your specific yarn for recommendations.

Chenille Yarn is super soft! It feels great against your skin and has a beautiful drape, making it perfect for creating cozy items.

Some popular projects to make with this jumbo yarn include:

- Blankets and throws
- Scarves and cowls
- Sweaters and cardigans
- Hats and headbands
- Pillows and cushions
- Amigurumi and other toys
- Home decor items such as wall hangings and plant hangers

Chenille Yarn is great for adding texture to any handicraft project. You can use it alone or combine it with other yarns to create a unique and interesting design.

Chenille Yarn is different to work with than traditional yarn. Here are a few tips to help you keep your project soft and fluffy:

- Be gentle. Chenille Yarn is delicate, and the piles can get pulled off if you’re rough with it. Take your time and go slowly to avoid breaking or unraveling the yarn.
- Avoid frogging (undoing) your stitches as much as possible. The more you pull out and redo stitches, the more the piles will unravel, and the yarn will lose its softness.
- Use simple stitches. Since yarn is thick, intricate stitches may get lost in the texture.
- Be prepared for shedding. Chenille Yarn tends to shed a bit, no matter how careful you are. When you're done crafting, you may have more mess to clean up than usual.
