This chenille yarn is the softest, plushiest yarn ever! If you want some personal soft, squishy loving therapy, crochet with this yarn! It will shed at the beginnings and ends of the yarn, but tying it right away stops that. I crochet stitches with it and then I remove some yarn to expose the thread and tie it to the strand by it. Hides easily. I still weave in ends, but tie it when I’m happy where it’s at. I hadn’t worked with chenille at all, this was my first. I was intimidated. But watched a YouTube video and I’m glad I did. I’ve used a crochet K and N, 9 hooks. N is definitely looser, fluffier feel. Using a K, makes it more dense, but still the softest ever. You will love working with it.
