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.
Our cotton chenille pipe cleaners are great for making face masks!
So soft and fuzzy, but made with sturdy
wire centers, these 100% natural cotton
chenille pipe cleaners provide a strong,
yet comfortable nose wire support for a
homemade fabric face mask.
pipe cleaners for crafting felted animals
Super popular with home sewers that
are making their own face masks for
family and friends, you can use either
the 1/8" or 1/4" pipe cleaners as the
gauge of the wire is the same.

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.

Yellow Chenille Roping
1990's Old Stock ~ Germany
The soft yellow hue of this chenille
roping makes it a natural choice for
crafting anything from fanciful little
figures to flowers to bumblebees!
We had this German chenille roping
made for us in the mid-'90s. Stored
in our archives for almost 25 years,
it's in unused, like-new condition.
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 yellow chenille
stem wired roping is 1/8" wide.

'Candy Cane' Chenille Roping
1990's Old Stock ~ Germany
Dating to the mid-1990's, we had this
chenille twist roping made especially
for us in Germany. Created from two
pieces of wired chenille, so it's extra
sturdy and easily holds any shape.
This high quality chenille roping is
firm but has a soft, plush texture.
Still in fresh, unused condition, the
colors of the chenille fibers are as
bright and vibrant as the day it was
made more than 25 years ago.

Each piece of this chenille roping has
variations in the spacing of the stripes.
A skilled worker feeds two pieces of
red and white chenille roping into a
specialized machine that twists them
together, so much like old-fashioned
candy canes that are made by hand,
the stripes in this trim will vary.

A note about our double-twist roping
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.
