3. What is the difference between string, rope, cord, etc.?
The terms string, rope and cord are used a lot in macrame and can mean one thing to one person and something different to the next.
Cord: An overarching term that I use to refer to either string or rope.
String: Refers to single strand twisted string which is created by twisting individual strands of fibre together. A great feature of cotton string is that it can be brushed out to create tassels, feathers, etc. Natural cotton string is a off white/cream/ecru colour but cotton string can also be purchased in a variety of different colours.
Rope: Is created by twisting individual strands of fibre together to make groups. Those groups are then twisted or braided together to create rope. Groups of 2 creates 2 Ply rope, and groups of 3 creates 3 Ply rope (both are used frequently in macrame). 2/3 Ply Rope can be untwisted to create wavy fringe.
Groups can also be braided together to create braided rope. We wouldn't recommend creating fringe with braided rope as it does not brush out or unravel well.
