What Is A Chenille Bedspread? The best selling style of bedding was originally crafted Catherine Evans in 1859 in Dalton, Georgia back in the late 1800s (based upon French and Scottish fabrics developed 100 years earlier). Chenille which means caterpillar in French because the fabric has a thick, tufted and fuzzy texture, was originally hand knotted but became mass produced on machines in the late 1800’s. The process of making this vintage and antique style fabric later became the foundation for carpet production in the United States. These old fashioned bed sets (also sometimes referred to a candlewick bedspreads - because of the long threads and yarns that are used) are extremely soft and warm, the thick carpet like appearance creates an especially cozy bedroom decor, which makes them perfect for fall and winter. Traditionally dyed in solid white, cream or ivory, but today these coverlets come in many colors including burgundy red, gold, blue, yellow and purple and more and normally feature complex geometric or floral designs, using the depth of the chenille fabric yarn and stitching for contrast and are primary woven from sumptuous soft cotton yarn or thread.
