I have been looking for these for years. My father gave me a small package of 6" ones years ago left over from his pipe smoking days. Have a basket full of clothespin people awaiting limbs.
Luxurious is the word I would use for these pipe cleaners. Soft and all natural makes it easy to wrap limbs of fairy dolls. I would tell anyone to try them. I am sold!
Excited to find cotton pipe cleaners as I dislike the non natural ones. My little ones love to craft and play with these, and I don't have to worry about what they are made of. My only suggestion, offer them in some fun colors. (A Child's Dream notes they are not available in colors but can be easily dyed with Kool-Aid)
So glad to stumble onto these! I truly thought one could only buy in plastic! I've wanted to use pipe cleaners so many times but the non cotton ones freaked me out! Hooray for cotton!!
