  • Fiber Content: 100% Rayon Chenille
  • 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:

    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.

        Comments about Yarn > Weaving Yarn Rayon Chenille:

        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.

            This yarn is great for weaving scarves/shawls. I wish they still have space dyed chenille, though.

                I've used this chenille for at least 30 years, but recently remembered why I dont order browns online....the dark brown is actually VERY olive--I would actually name it dark olive and leave the brown word out completely. It is a lovely color, but it's not brown. Now, I don't have the brown I wanted, and I have enough dark olive to last me a lifetime. Next time I want to order browns, I will probably ask for samples first. Webs is great!!

                    Webbs carries top quality yarns and you know your end product will be perfect. I sale all my weaving and only do one of a kind items, so they have to be perfect.
