This listing is for a hand-dyed, luxurious, blue, chenille fiber. The fiber is 100% nylon and can be couched to textiles by hand or machine. Chenille is a French word meaning “caterpillar” and is used for yarn that looks like the caterpillar’s "fur". You can certainly see how this yarn got its name. This is a fun embellishment fiber and will add a whimsical accent to many of your textile art, crazy quilt, and mixed media projects. However, it should not be used for a project that will get lots of “wear and tear”. It is more suitable for items that will not require a lot of handling or washing.
The fiber has been commercially dyed; however, if you plan to place it next to white or a very light color, I suggest that you wash it in cold water with salt or vinegar to make certain every bit of the dye has been removed. You may, also, use Synthrapol, which is a special detergent for removing excess dye from fabric and fibers. If pressing is needed, use your iron's lowest setting to test heat; a burst of steam will, usually, straighten out the wrinkles.
