The size 2 is the bigger, on chenille the bigger the number the larger the chenille is.

2 is bigger! There is a lot more to chenille than size also. Size 0 is more for flitting guys or maybe some very tiny jigs. From 1/48 to 1/4 can be tied using #2, but also so many other factors enter into how well a chenille will look on a 1/16 Oz jig or a 1/8 Oz jig! Size #2 will need to be double wrapped on the 1/8. Also once you add in Crystal as in like New Age type, it will make it smaller when tied as it's denseness is different when the Crystal is added in. So most of mine if it's a New Age style will be a #3 and maybe even a #4 size. It all depends on what you want and need. One more thing to throw a cloud into it, lets say you want some with Crystal in it, but maybe you don't need it as an equal, so make it 2 parts regular chenille and one part Crystal, then it will be a lot more dense and still have the Crystal in it.

Oh and then lets just look at Crystal, if you are tying regular chenille on say a 1/32 Oz jig, any regular chenille (meaning Rayon or Nylon) once you get larger than #3 it's too much, but with just Crystal I often use #10 on a 1/32 Oz jig! Crystal changes everything as what is possible and what is not!

So size is not everything in tying and many ways to look at materials!
