Lion Brand Chenille Yarn
Need a bulky-weight yarn with a plush feel? Lion Brands Chenille yarn is a fairly popular version of this specialty material, great for heavy-weight projects with its semi-stretchy, fuzzy feel. The yarn is an acrylic blend with a small amount of polyester and nylon. With that blend of materials, its machine-washable and just a little stretchy. The yarns ability to give makes it easier to work with than most cotton or non-synthetic blends. Its bulk makes most projects go faster as well, though knitters may need some time to adjust to the yarns texture. The yarn comes in fairly small skeins of 2.5 oz., or 100 yards, but its still relatively inexpensive for a specialty yarn.
