A Good Yarn: Cygnet’s Super Soft Chenille Chunky

 

 

The Chenille Chunky from Cygnet is a popular choice for knitters and crocheters due to its uniqueness as a chenille and its versatility. Available in a range of bold colours to catch the eye, there are 12 mouth-watering shades. These include Honeydew, Sky and Sorbet. The Chenille Chunky is a gorgeous, squishably soft and textured yarn perfect for garments, accessories, blankets, toy making and homewares. With six, soft pastel shades as part of the range, they are perfect for baby blankets and children’s wear – especially as the yarn is machine washable.

Furthermore, Chenille Yarn offers a number of lovely characteristics such as its luxurious softness. The yarn is super soft to the touch and made of 100% polyester. It’s also thick and durable with a good drape (especially when worked on bigger needles or hooks). It’s great for multi-uses such as homewares (think rugs, cushion covers and giant blankets!) as well as garments including sweaters, shawls, tunics, gloves, cardigans and robes. Plus, it’s also perfect for baby blankets due to its incredible softness. It offers snug warmth and a drapey effect for little ones. Toy making and amigurumi are a popular project choice too for using our chenille yarn due to its versatility, softness and velvety feel.
