This project combines our love of chenille with a desire to wear a soft, comforting wrap. The fabric hugs your body, feeling luxurious and soothing against your skin. While rayon chenille may have a reputation of being hard to work with, we guarantee that it's much easier than expected with our top quality chenille.
