Chenille Yarn: 4 Balls


How Many Would You Like?

About this product:

Last time we went up to the Yorkshire mills, we came back with a few bags of this gorgeous "Chenille Yarn" and we couldn't wait to share it with you.

We’ve yet to try everything we can with the chenille yarn as it’s new to us too, but what we have worked out is that it looks great loopy rag rugged (particularly as a cushion!) We wouldn’t, however, recommend cutting it into smaller pieces for shaggy rag rugging, as it sheds when cut horizontally.

As the chenille yarn is a lighter weight than our classic woollen blanket yarn, it can be rag rugged full width, which means less cutting  Equally, you can cut it up the middle lengthways if you find it easier.

Feeling creative? It could also be used for crochet, knitting, weaving etc… I’m currently twining a rag rug with it.

How much do I need?

In the loopy technique, one ball of chenille roughly covers one 40 x 40cm cushion face (our Ragged Life Cushion Hessian), so you’d need approx 4 balls to make a 100 x 60cm loopy rug (our Ragged Life Medium Rug Hessian). That’s only £30 for the fabric for a whole rug!

You can also mix the chenille in with other fabrics for a variety of textures in your rag rug creations.
