With a wonderfully fuzzy, plush texture, "Cotton Chenille" from Crystal Palace is a terrific choice for your clothing and home decor projects. Often called "knittable velvet," its short, thick pile is dense and knits up and crochets extremely well using basic stitches like garter and stockinette and in textured cabling too. Great used alone in sweaters, tops, even washcloths & bath towels, but also combines sensationally with other Crystal Palace novelty yarns like "Whisper" for special effects. 100% combed cotton.

This is a fabulous yarn - soft but strong and delightful to work with. I am knitting a prayer shawl and have not knitted for several years, and this yarn is making my reutrn to knitting a real pleasure!

This is a great yarn to work with. It does not worm as many chenille yarns do. Since it is cotton it does not have much 'give' to it, but that is to be expected. It creates a great fabric!
