Please Read! If you are new to working with high quality Chenille yarn, this product is knit using a much smaller needle size to produce a dense fabric to minimize the chance of the stitches elongating once knit, also known as "worming" - this can happen with chenille yarns as they are very slick and smooth. I highly recommend that you "full" your finished project which transforms your knitting into a gorgeous velvet-like fabric with even more beautiful sheen and drape. (Same advice for Crochet)
To Full Knitted Bulky Rayon Chenille : place your knitted item the washing machine and set your machine on Gentle Cycle + HOT water setting + Low Water Level (just enough to cover) and wash for 2 minutes and spin dry. You item will come out of the machine hard as a rock. Do not worry. Magic time! Place in a dryer with a terry bath towel on highest heat setting and tumble for up to 1.5 hours, or until completely dry. Check often on progress. Produces the most beautiful, velvety drape to the knit fabric. Works every time. From the good folks at Blue Heron Yarns.
