The fabric got its name after the crosswise yarn, chenille (it is a decorative yarn made of cotton, wool and artificial threads). They are rich fabrics, pleasant to touch and have high usage value. The chenille yarn is basically a type of fluffy yarn, which can be made of cotton or some sort of artificial threads. They increase the body/volume of the fabric, the surface is made more sculpturesque and pleasant touch is created. The cotton variants are favorable for their hygroscopic character, the acryl or polyester version is advantageous for good abrasion resistance, fastness to light and easy cleanabilty.
