Valley Yarns Rayon Chenille

WEBS is one of the only suppliers of rayon chenille to use colorfast dyes. A bit more expensive, but well worth the cost. Rayon chenille is spectacular woven. We recommend a sett of 12 to 16 epi. Fine gauge machine knitters can also produce wonderful fabrics with rayon chenille. (We do not recommend rayon chenille this fine for hand knitting as it is slippery and has no resilience, so it is most likely to stretch.)  $1.50 per cone charge for wind-off service. Please see our FAQ page for more information about in-store wind-offs.

Color Cards and Color Books for this yarn are available.

Note: Yarns sold by the pound may have their quantity adjusted before the order is sent to reflect the actual weight of what is being sent out. Cone weights may vary.

Comments about Valley Yarns Rayon Chenille:

I have used cotton Chenille and love it's weight and feel. I was hoping this Rayon Chenille would be similar. In all ways it is, although it is flat like the other chenille it is a much thinner weight. I love using it because the colors and shine are beautiful so double it up and use 2 strands at a time. It was advertised for knitting, but I use it for crocheting and it works great!

    Comments about Valley Yarns Rayon Chenille:

    I use only with itself, have had it worm out of place when mixed with other yarns. I use 12 epi, about equal to weft, packing in as tight as it can. The colors are rich, wonderful and fast. Makes a nice scarf, soft on the skin. Several other weavers say it breaks for them. They are using heavier looms. My relatively delicate Harrisville is just right.

        This chenille makes up beautifully, and I was able to make some gorgeous scarves and wraps from it. I am not a particularly experienced weaver, but I found it very easy to work with. and produced very satisfying results.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Rayon Chenille:

          This makes an item with a bit of weight and a medium warmth, enough to take the chill off but not like wool. It works well for scarves, cowls, ponchos and throws. I would not use it for a baby blanket, however. It has a pretty sheen, rich colors and a soft drape. Also, it is soft and doesn't itch, a real plus.

            The chenille is strong enough to hold up as the warp and weft and weaves a beautiful scarf. When washed it becomes very soft. Love the colors available!
