0.9 mm in Ø Braid Construction | Spools ~ 6.5 yd - 6 m | Available in Silver, Copper or Gold | Made in China
Washable. Dries quickly. Cords ends can be melted. Just like Chinese Knotting Cord, it is best to cut the cord with a thread burner to keep the braid from opening up and thread from spreading out.
As to diameter this cord is in between Chinese Knotting Cord Fine/New Fine and 1mm, and just a bit thicker than C-Lon Tex 400. When compared to C-Lon Tex 400, this cord is quite different as it is a braid, not a 3-ply cord. It retains its round shape, it does not flattens out or collaspes when manipulated.
Personal Note - This a new cord available as of May 2018. It is a very strong. It can be knotted, braided and used for crochet. It is quite as soft as the Japanese Metallic Thread/Cord, but so much more stronger and thicker as it is a 16 strand braided cord with a center core. So far I have been playing with the bracelets shown here and tested it as a cord for pendants using the sterling silver 1.5mm clasp available HERE. The gold filled 1.5mm clasps will also work with the gold cord. I will test it next for shambhala bracelets, earrings and more... So stay tuned and let me know if you would like a sample of this cord with your next order.
