Chenilles are made by laying fibers at right angle between two threads and then twisting the threads so that the fibers radiate from the central twisted rope like core.   The perpendicular fibers form a cylindrical fuzzy rope.  This rope can be wound onto a hook shank to make a bulky fuzzy body.  The cross fibers can be of many textures, colors and diameters.  The most popular chenilles incorporate fine fibers made from nylon.  They are soft to the touch and com in many colors.  Other chenilles incorporate cross fibers that are made from mylar in both reflective and pearlescent finishes.  All though chenilles are very durable when tied into a body and secured by thread, they are somewhat fragile to work with as they tend to unwind.   Ultra chenilles are more durable to work with since they are made by lifting fibers from a solid monofilament.  They are however harder to tie in without adding bulk since they don't have a fine core which can be stripped of bulk.

Ultra Chenille, Standard
This remarkably adaptable material looks much like regular chenille but is much denser and of a   more uniform diameter. Regular chenille is made from fibers that are spun between two stout threads. It may be unraveled. Ultra chenille is made by raising the nap from a monofilament core.
It is all one piece of material and will not unravel. It tapers easily with an open flame. It is the ultimate material from which to construct size #12 and #14 extended body caddis and midge pupa such as Smith's Emergent/Diving Caddis and Palomino Midge Pupa. It also is the best material for tying San Juan Worms and is easily colored with felt markers.  3 yard card.
