CHINESE KNOTTING CORD <MEDIUM/FINE/EXTRA FINE> MICRO SIZES
Chinese Knotting Cord
Sizes:
~

Chinese knotting cord is a braided nylon cord used for Chinese and Japanese ornamental knotting. All the cord below have a center core made of nylon, so they are fusible and the ends can be melted with a thread burner. Thread burners are available in the toll section. > More

Many sizes are available: Medium 1.2-1.5mm in diameter, Fine 0.8mm in diameter, 1mm, Extra Fine 0.7mm and the Micro Sizes are 0.6mm and thinner. These braids are smooth, soft and flexible with a center core to keep them rounded and increase their firmness. The Medium and Fine sizes are available in skeins or by cards or bobbins of 10 yards for your convenience.

The Medium and Fine weight colors usually match, but dye lots are sometimes very noticeable and the colors in Medium and Fine Weights do no longer match exactly. Buying Skeins? > Read Tips on How to Unwind Skeins

The 1mm and Extra Fine colors usually match. All the other weights are available by cards or bobbins with a few selections available by spools. Spool size is noted. The skeins, cards and bobbins are hand wound so yardage is approximate.

Newest arrivals - with many colors matching
> 2mm Braid - Jewelry quality. Braided nicely. Good for project requiring larger cord weight such as men's bracelets.
This is the best cord in larger diameter I have seen. All others I found so far look like shoe laces or parachute cord.

> High Density 1mm-1.2mm Braid - Braided tightly. Knot sizes, same as the Medium weight cord.
> New Fine Weight - Similar to the Fine Weight, but comes on large spools instead of skeins.
> H Size and new color offering in other Micro Sizes

Applications > Shambhala Square Knot Bracelet - See NEW KITS. Necklaces, earrings. Floating sliding square knot closures for necklaces and bracelets. Stringing antique beads with large holes. Kumihimo. Can be intermixed with other cords such as C-Lon Cords or used for micro macrame by itself.

10 yard (9.15 m) cards or plastic spools/bobbins ***, skeins (75 m) or spools
Made in China or Taiwan- Diameters are approximate. Expect some variations of diameter, texture and sheen within each weight. Cards hand-wound on recycled material. > Order Samples of the different weights/diameter.

Personal Note - Many years ago a customer asked me to re-knot a Chinese belt with carved jade pieces and beads into a neckpiece. 256 Chinese button knots later done with extra fine Chinese knotting cord, I had this knot memorized and could do it in my sleep... The Chinese knotting cord is great for making square knot bracelets with large beads and sliding square knot closure for adjustable length cords. Supply is not always available, dye lots changes are noticeable - so order accordingly.

2mm Weight ~ 2 mm Ø
$5.00 - 10 yard card or bobbins - $30.00 - 110 yds/100 m Spools
These following cord comes on spools. The braid quality is very even and the cord finish is matte.

High Density Quality Braid ~ 1.2mm-1.5mm
$5.00 - 10 yard card or bobbin - $32.00 - 158 yds/145 m Spools
This cord has a high count of braiding elements per inch. The braiding elements are fine and cross each other closely. It has a mat appearance with almost no sheen. The braiding looks fine and the cord feels dense. It holds knots well and has a nice grip. The diameter of this cord is a bit thinner than the Medium Weight, however it is more tightly braided, rounder and a bit stiffer, so it knots are the same sizes.
