Chenille Mega Yarn
Measuring approximately three quarters of an inch diameter, this Chenille Mega Yarn is perfect for Mega knitting, Mega crochet, Hand knitting, Thumb knitting and even Arm knitting. This polyester Chenille has a very soft ‘handle’ and weighs in at just over 8 ounces for twenty five yards. It is machine washable (cool wash recommended) and can happily bounce around in the tumble dryer without felting. I have to admit, those are some pretty significant advantages over the llama and alpaca fiber we usually work with.
$14.80 per skein is less than a quarter of the price for the equivalent natural yarn and it is always available in quantity.
What is Chenille?
Chenille is derived from the French word meaning caterpillar; a reference to the tufted appearance of the yarn. Thankfully, this yarn does not have legs and is unable to move of its own accord!
