  • Weight/Yardage: 1 pound cones, 1450 YPP
  • Care: Hand Wash
  • Sett: 12-18 epi

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 Yarn > Weaving Yarn Rayon Chenille:

This is consistently good quality chenille -- which is getting hard to find. Thank you, WEBS! The range of colors available is wide (and the sample cards provide enough length to judge compatibility with other yarns).
Of course, it tends to fray and worm -- it's chenille. But handle it correctly and it behaves well. Not like other chenille yarns that fray when if they're looked at.

      Comments about Yarn > Weaving Yarn Rayon Chenille:

      Rayon chenille always has a stretch issue, so its hardly a negative, but it is something to note. But if used correctly (I weave so I have a sett of 18 epi) it is a beautiful yarn with lots of luster, softness, and beautiful saturated color. The quality from Valley Yarns is consistent in color and quality of yarn.

          The yarn wove up perfectly. The color was almost exactly the same as I viewed on my iPad. I will, definitely be getting more!

                Just finished weaving your #74 scarf pattern using the rayon chenille. The colors available are brilliant, beautiful and just lush. I thought this fiber might be tricky to weave with but was pleasantly surprised. I used the colors suggested by the pattern and the finished scarf is lovely. Thank you for offering this pattern. Very pleased.

                    Finding a charcoal grey chenille on a cone is not an easy task, especially if you don't want to spend a fortune. I happened to catch Valley Yarns chenille when it was marked down and bought my perfect grey. Wonderful weight and quality for my woven chenille scarves.
