I'm sure you're talking about chenille. I love it...it's so soft and comforting.
Chenille can be very lightweight, or quite heavy. I have a robe and a jacket that are both very thick and heavy.
Sizzlin, my daughter had an old, worn out ivory robe that she threw out for the dogs to sleep on. Jamie was expecting at the time, and when her landlady retrieved the robe and asked if she might have it, J had no idea what she had in mind.
When the baby came, the landlady came to visit, and brought the baby a teddy bear she had made from his mommy's robe. It was adorable.

Yep - it's Chenille. When I read the 1st post on this thread I laughed out loud. My wicked stepmonster used to make us take naps when she wanted to take one - I was around 8 or 10 years old - too old for naps. Being bored, I picked a lot of the fuzzies out of the design of her chenille bedspread - got into big trouble for that!

I was a napper, but my girls weren't, so I just called it "Quiet Time". They could watch their TV's or whatever, as long as they stayed in their rooms and were quiet.
The rule was...don't wake up mom except in cases of serious injury or death, fire, flood, or tornado.
It didn't always work, but when it did did, it was great.

Intersting thread--I have several of these in the attic, put away in a trunk by my Gran. I hated them as a kid (didn't like the bumpies ); I much preferred her and her mom's homemade quilts and the mohair blankets. I still keep () available the mohair blanket she reserved for me when I was sick. Somehow, it still makes me feel better. And no, guys, it's not my blankee!
