Choosing a custom patch for chenille is not all about placement, backing options, and size – It is also about the chenille yarn raise look; chenille patches come in with sating embroidery and chain stitch mixed. But the lifted look of fuzzy yarn is what makes this embroidery type unique.
You never know how much raised-chenile you should go to get the best out of your custom logo. It can be a little confusing to decide if you don’t know all about it.
I am going to unbox piles of yarn in terms of fluffiness and the amount of lift-up together in this comparison guide.
What Is Chenille Embroidery?
Since you’re reading this; you must be aware of custom embroidery –chenille embroidery refers to loops of yarn thread for stand-out looks. But it comes in a high-raised and low finish.
High-raised chenille embroidery looks good on big chenille patches. It works better in open areas, the bigger the design is; it comes out more elegant.
Whereas, small chenille patches fit well for low piles. Specifically, when the artwork involves text inside.
At Patches Mania, the procedure of how to create chenille patches is different for low and high piles.
While making high-raised chenille patches, we use flat garment fabric and run-over chenille embroidery.
So, it goes like cotton twill fabric > chenille embroidery.
However, making low-pile custom chenille patches is different.
The procedure works through towel fabric > regular embroidery

To get the most out of an order you need to check back. I highly recommend big-size patches for lifted high raised. While if your logo is small in size you need to go for low piles to get the best quality and cleaner looks.
Hope this guide makes a clear difference between both types of chenille embroidery and I wish best of luck getting thrilling quality custom patches.
