What's a 'Chainette' Yarn?
A chainette yarn is a yarn that is created by knitting a tube from a fine strand of yarn. This makes the yarn extremely light and fluffy. The chainette construction has several benefits:
- Chainettes are extremely light, yet at the same time warm, because they hold a lot of air (which is actually an insulator).
- Chainettes don't split when you're working with them.
- Because they are so light, chainettes typically have longer yardage than other yarns of the same thickness.
- Chainettes tend to have a bit more elasticity and give, because they are already knitted.
- You can play around with needle size and tension because the yarn can be squished down or allowed to bloom.
- Because they are already knitted, chainettes tend to have a little bit of texture built-in.
