Yarn Reviews | Yippiee For Yarn



Just a little about the yarn – Chenille yarns – in India launched as recent as 2019 ( if i am not mistaken) Ganga Velvety, Vardhman Blanket Yarn, Nako Lili were first few and now we are spoilt with choices with Ice Yarns Cakes Chenille Baby , Pom Pom Yarns, etc and now addition to the list is the Ganga Blankie etc . I have worked with some of these yarns – and i thought of adding a series of all that i have learnt as a a review. I hope it helps folks who want to venture into these class of yarns.

What did I Make?Hooded Capelet AmigurumiBlanketBeanie
Yarn – Feel Excellent Excellent Good Good
Ease of working Easy Easy Easy Easy
Shedding of Yarn NIL NIL NIL High
Fluffiness Good GoodAveragepoor
Advantages Its fluffy and good to work with , has extreme soft texture, and non sheddingAvailable in solid colors and variegated , the fluffiness wants one to work more with the yarn and non shedding Its a good yarn – with solid and variegated yarnsAttractive pastel shades with a velvety shine to the yarn
DisdavantageCurrently variegated yarn onlyThe yarn is quiet bulky – so plan your project accordingly and decide the yardage to avoid a WIP hillChenille is flat – so the fluffiness is limited, also has lurex – which kind of makes it a little itchyNot a pleasant experience as the shedding of the fur was too high
