|This lovely range of chenille is from Max New $24 per metre. New chenille not vintage with the strips of chenille running along the length of the fabric.
I recommend a light warm wash and hot clothes dry of the chenille prior to use. We have been advised that the colour does not run and chenille will not shrink by our supplier but I would still recommend wash and dryer, especially regarding strong or dark colours ie red, navy, black, brown, burgundy, purple.
Following is a guide to the number of squares you will get from a cut of fabric:
6" or 6.5" finished squares, purchase 20cm = 6 squares after shrinkage.
7", 7.5" or 8" finished squares, purchase 25cm = 5 squares after shrinkage.
8.5", 9", 9.5" or 10" finished squares, purchase 30cm = 4 squares after shrinkage.
Please note that this is a guide only and based on my trials using a warm water wash and hot dryer.
