3mm/5mm Twisted Single Strand String & 4mm Triple Strand Rope
Oeko Tex Certified
Each spool contains:
4mm Rope - Approx. 500 ft (150 m), 1 kg
3mm String - Approx. 1050 - 1100 ft (330 m), 1 kg
5mm String - Approx. 700 - 720 ft (220 m), 1 kg
*4mm String - A few spools of 3mm string are 4mm size (thicker than the others). Approximate length would be somewhere in between the lengths indicated above for 3mm and 5mm. Thank you!
3mm string is great to work with if you are planning to create small/medium wall hangings, accessories, plant hangers and other projects.
4mm rope is great to work with if you are planning to create a project with a little more structure such as a macraweave or plant hanger! Rope can also be used to create wall hangings with wavy fringe (untwist the rope to create wavy fringe!)
5mm string is great to work with if you are planning to create medium/large wall hangings, plant hangers or other projects.
1) Some spools are very tightly wound. When working with the cord, 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.
