Discover Our Selection of Chenille Yarn

Chenille yarn is a popular fly tying material known for its soft texture and vibrant colors. The word “chenille” comes from the French word for caterpillar, and the material is named for the fuzzy texture that it shares with the insect. Chenille yarn is a cotton or wool thread that is twisted and cut to create a soft, fuzzy texture. The fuzzy texture of chenille yarn is perfect for imitating the soft bodies of insects like caterpillars and caddis flies.

Chenille yarn is easy to work with and is commonly used to tie streamers and nymphs. It is especially effective when used to tie caddis fly imitations. The fuzzy texture of chenille yarn helps to create a caddis fly imitation that is almost identical to the natural insect. Chenille yarn is available in a wide range of colours, allowing you to easily match the natural colors of insects.

At Rocky Mountain Fly Shop, we offer a wide selection of chenille yarn in a variety of colours. We carry chenille yarn from reputable brands like Hook and Hackle, Wapsi, and more. With our selection of chenille yarn, you can easily find the colours and sizes of chenille yarn that you need to tie your favourite fly patterns.

In addition to our standard chenille yarn, we also carry sparkle chenille yarn. The reflection of the tinsel fibers in sparkle chenille yarn captures attention and lures in fish. And, it’s easy to tie, making even the most difficult flies simple.

Whether you are tying small nymphs or large streamers, chenille yarn is an essential item for any fly tying bench. Shop our selection of chenille yarn online today at Rocky Mountain Fly Shop to find all of the colours and sizes that you need to tie your favourite fly patterns.
