Chenille is a textured embroidery which is created by stitching on the top side of the fabric being embroidered using specialty yarns thicker than the normal ones, usually chosen for common embroideries. This technique results in a lovely and unique texture and a 3D effect that is often associated with luxury clothing or certain classics, like varsity jackets.
Different from standard embroidery, chenille is normally realized on a separate patch that will be applied to the garment in a second moment. The patch on which chenille is applied is commonly called felt.
The Chenille is characterized by two different stitching techniques, the chain stitches and the loop stitches. The first ones are used to outline the design, while the second ones are most often used to fill in areas and create the raised and 3D surface.
