Please Consider This Shopping Guide My Ode to Chenille

Chenille is the greatest textile to grace our planet, and no one can tell me otherwise. You can have your costly cashmeres and your ever-so-slightly scratchy wools; I will retreat into a chenille-filled paradise and live out the rest of my days there. Because nothing is consistently softer, consistently snugglier and honestly, consistently sleeker than chenille clothes.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of owning chenille anything, you need to seek out some chenille, ASAP—and then you need to caress it. Because you haven’t lived until you’ve felt chenille’s thick-yet-wispy tufts dancing along your fingertips, delighting every nerve they graze. Textiles aren’t supposed to be simultaneously smooth and snuggly; there are fleeces or silks, cottons or satins. But chenille walks this line ever so cleverly, inviting a sensory experience that’s simply unimaginable if you haven’t had a rendezvous with the fabric before.

There are few things I can do to make this world a better place. Many efforts feel futile, or small, or so embroiled in controversy and nuance that it’s hard to know what right even looks like, anymore. But one thing I know I can do is encourage every single one of you to fill your lives with chenille. Stock up on chenille blankets, chenille sweaters, chenille cardigans. These little joys count for a lot, and there’s truly no greater joy than bundling up in a shirt so soft you find yourself running your fingers over it all day long.

Lots of clothes can make you feel like you’re wearing your pajamas to work. But chenille clothes will make you feel like you’re wearing your entire bed to work. And really, why reject that opportunity to fill your hours with such absolute comfort?

Though chenille is an absolute gift, it does have some flaws—namely, that it doesn’t stay very elastic over time. While this will significantly cut the longevity of most turtlenecks, this shirt—and the other turtlenecks in this roundup—have necklines that are wide enough to hold up, regardless.
