The soft fabric gets its name from the French word for "caterpillar."It is made by placing a short piece of yarn between two "core" yarns and twisting them together. That's what makes the chenille soft and comfortable.
Chenille is a large needle, which means it works best on larger designs. If you need to perform smaller details, you can combine the two techniques of chenille and embroidery. Yarn density is very important for making a good Chenille patch.
Chenille is very soft, making it a popular fabric for skin-touching products such as blankets, bedspreads, pillows, and quilts. This adorable feature also makes the Chenille ideal for baby items such as blankets.
