This is the best chenille yarn on the market. Period. Why? Blue Heron Bulky Rayon Chenille can be fulled in the washing machine and dryer after knitting or crocheting your project, which locks in the stitches, minimizing the worming or twisting of stitches and produces the most divine, velvet-like fabric you have ever worn. This is not the Chenille from days of old. Pure luxury and perfect for accessories, garments, afghans. Hand dyed in 50+ outstanding colours. 250yd/228m. This yarn produces an Aran gauge of 18 stitches when knit on a US6/4mm needle. $40/skein.
