Old-Time Pipe Cleaners
Top Quality Cotton Chenille Stems for Arts & Crafts Projects
100% cotton chenille fibers ~ Made in the USA
Our artists' all-time favorite chenille stems!
These cotton chenille pipe stems are used
in so many of Blümchen's exclusive holiday
decorations, and are what we use to make
the inner armatures for our fanciful cotton
batting people Christmas ornaments.
Made with sturdy wire centers, these pipe
cleaners are easily formed into any design,
yet are firm enough to hold their shape. To
make extra-strong chenille stems, you can
twist together two or three pieces, or even
weave the stems into a braid. The natural
cotton fibers take dye well, so they can be
dyed to any custom color.
Manufactured in America by a family-owned
company, these old-time pipe cleaners are
still made in the traditional fashion from soft,
100% cotton chenille fibers with a firm wire
center. Extra absorbent, they are of course
perfect for cleaning smoker's pipes, and are
also popular as a handy cleaning supply in
workshops for reaching into tight spots.

Chenille Stems
1980's Old Stock ~ Made in USA
These 30-year-old chenille stems date
to the late '80s when we purchased
them from the manufacturer. Made by
'Blue Jay Brand,' we have kept them
safely stored in our archives. Still in
fresh, unused condition, the colors of
the chenille fibers are as bright and
vibrant as the day they were made.
As the boxes from the manufacturer
weren't labeled with the composition
of the chenille fibers, our best guess
is that the blue are a cotton/poly mix
because they are stiffer but have a
soft feel, while the silky, plush fibers
of the green chenille stems feels like
it is most probably 100% cotton.

Black Chenille Roping
1990's Old Stock ~ Germany
We had this chenille roping made for
us in Germany in the mid-'90s. Stored
in our archives for almost 25 years,
it's still in unused, like-new condition.
A unique item for crafter's because
the wired roping comes in two long
pieces that are each 5', we used it to
craft this creepy Halloween spider!
Produced in a tight spiral, the fibers
are cotton and polyester so that the
chenille is firm but with a softer feel.
Cotton/poly blend black chenille
stem wired roping is 1/8" wide.
10 ft. total - each bag contains
two 5' long pieces of roping.

Fluffy White Chenille Trim
1990's Old Stock ~ Germany
Soft and fluffy, this trim was made
for us more than 25 years ago by a
family-owned company in Germany.
Sadly, the manufacturer closed their business in the late 1990's, so this is
our final offering of this wonderful
old stock white chenille trimming.
A nifty craft supply for doll artisans,
this fluffy chenille can be used as a
"fur" trim on hats and costumes, and
it's also perfect for embellishing a
Santa Claus doll's coat, too!
Cotton/poly blend chenille trim
has a white cotton thread center.
Chenille trim is 1/2" wide.
1.5 yards total (4½ ft.) per bag.

Mini White Chenille Trim
1990's Old Stock ~ Germany
When we couldn't find a fine, narrow
chenille roping for our cotton batting
figures, we asked a manufacturer in
Germany to custom make this fuzzy
trim especially for us. Old stock from
the early '90s, the soft white fibers
have a silky sheen. The chenille trim
takes fabric dye nicely, as you can
see by the pink "fur" on her hat.
We don't know the exact composition
of the fibers, but as it dyes so easily
we suspect that it is mostly cotton.
