Variegated Chenille Yarn
Stunning color combinations make this variegated yarn the choice for weavers looking for a bit more style in the next project. Rayon Chenille can be used to make wonderful towels, bathrobes, soft sweaters and bathmats. Unlike most yarns which are spun from a raw fiber, Rayon Chenille is actually constructed in a process similar to weaving. The yarn is produced using a centre strand made up of very tightly wound, long fibers. Shorter, softer fibers are then spun into these center strands to give the yarn the appearance of a very thin woven fabric. The long, sturdy center strand gives the yarn its durability, and the short pieces gives it the soft feel. Because Rayon Chenille is crafted from wood pulp, most consider it to be a natural fiber.
