Chenille yarn only produces one kind of fabric: chenille fabric. It’s a soft fabric. The word itself is a derivative of the French word for “caterpillar”. This comes from not only the above mentioned softness, but from the way it piles under hands and the way the yarn looks. The biggest reason chenille and velvet are lumped together is because of the similar feels to the fabrics. However, the two materials are created in completely different ways.

Velvet is a machine woven fabric, often created by making two sheets of fabric at once. Chenille is woven by hand or machine, and can be given two different appearances by the weave: either an incredibly smooth and even weave, or something a little chunkier.
