chenille yarn?
I am wanting to do some baby stuff (esp. blankets) in chenille yarn, which I have never used. A few questions:

1. I've noticed when I buy a chenille sweater from the store, it tends to get holes in it if I wash it, even on the delicate cycle. Have any of you knitted with chenille? Does it hold up? Am I just shopping too many blue light specials, or is it the nature of the critter?

2. Is it harder to knit with?

3. What weight is your average chenille comparable to? Or does it just depend on the yarn?

Thanks in advance,

Kirstin
