The chenille yarn is manufactured by placing short lengths of yarn, called the “pile”, between two “core yarns” and then twisting the yarn together. The edges of these piles then stand at right angles to the yarn’s core, giving chenille both its softness and its characteristic look. Chenille will look different in one direction compared to another, as the fibers catch the light differently creating a stunning textured finish to your headboard.
Crushed Velvet produced by twisting the fabric whilst it is wet. Different designs in the fabric can be created by weaving in multiple threads of different colours. Velvet is then usually brushed while it is still moist so that it sets with a grain. This is what produces its characteristic feel.
