I just finished a project in chenille. When I first started using it, I thought I would never get through it. I will tell you it is finicky, it does NOT like to be ripped out, fortunately, I did not have to. I personally would not use chenille for something that would be used everyday and would need to stand up to a lot of abuse. I would stick with a softer cotton or even a light mohair.
Keep smiling... it makes people wonder what you are up to!
