Single Strand Twisted Soft Cotton String & 3 Ply (Triple) Rope
Oeko Tex Certified
Each spool contains:
3mm String - Approx. 1000 ft (305m), 1 kg
5mm String - Approx. 650 ft (200m), 1 kg
5mm Rope - Approx. 320 ft (100m), 1 kg
9mm String- Approx. 275 ft (84m), 1.2 kg
This string is made out of very thin strands of soft cotton which makes it easy to work with. Use a comb or pet brush to create beautiful fringe.
3mm is a great size to work with if you are planning to create small/medium wall hangings, accessories, plant hangers and other projects.
5mm is a great size to use if you are planning to create medium/large wall hangings, plant hangers or other projects.
7mm and 9mm are great sizes to use for larger chunkier wall hangings, tassels and to create thick fringe.
Rope (vs. string) has a bit more structure which makes it a great option for macra-weaves or plant hangers!
1) Some spools are very tightly wound. When working with the string, it will expand 0.5-1mm in size.
2) Spools are dyed in batches. As such there may be slight colour variations between batches. Spools are measured by weight not length.
3) Colours may appear slightly different when viewing on a computer or phone screen. I’ve done my best to show the true colour in each photo.
