Pipe cleaners were invented by John Harry Stedman [1] and Charles Angel in Rochester, New York in the early 1900s, later to be sold on to BJ Long Company, [2] [3] with a possibly parallel invention by Johan Petter Johansson 1923.

Medical Science Educator. 31 (3): 1053–1064. doi: 10.1007/s40670-021-01274-2. ISSN 2156-8650. PMC 8368674. PMID 34457949. A pipe cleaner is made of two lengths of wire, called the core, twisted together trapping short lengths of fibre between them, called the pile. Pipe cleaners are usually made two at a time, as the inner wires of each pipe cleaner have the yarn wrapped around them, making a coil, the outer wires trap the wraps of yarn, which are then cut, making the tufts. Chenille yarn is made in much the same way, which is why craft pipe cleaners are often called "chenille stems". The word "chenille" comes from French meaning "caterpillar". Some pipe cleaner machines are actually converted chenille machines. Some machines produce very long pipe cleaners which are wound onto spools. The spools may be sold as-is or cut to length depending on the intended use. Other machines cut the pipe cleaners to length as they come off the machines. Smoking pipe cleaners are usually 15–17cm (6–7inches) long. Craft ones are often 30cm (12inches) and can be up to 50cm (20inches). They come in comes in 4mm, 6mm, and 15mm diameter sizes. [11] Jumbo pipe cleaners have a 30mm diameter with lengths of 45cm (18inches) and 2metres (6.5 feet).
