I made a scarf with it. I liked knitting with it, the only thing I noticed with chenile is that it sheds a bit. When I was wearing it, I noticed little threads on my clothing.

I made an item or two out of some. I like the softness. I found that it did shed, the yarn does not have much stretch, and you can't see the stitch work.

I would use it again for the right project, maybe a cute mobius scarf.
