Chinese Knotting Cord is available in many sizes from 0.4mm to 2mm in diameter and are available in a very wide color range. The cords are made out of nylon and braided with a center core with no twist. These braids are smooth, soft and flexible, and the center core keeps them rounded and increase their firmness and stretch resistance. These cords are available in spools, skeins, 5, 10, and 50 yards lengths. The shorter lengths are wound on EZ-Bobs. The larger ones are usually wound on spools or available in skeins.

Chinese Knotting Cord is great for Chinese and Japanese ornamental knotting as it hold knots well. It can also be used for cording for pendants and amulets, for necklaces and earrings. It is a good choice for floating sliding square knot closures for necklaces and bracelets, for stringing antique beads with large holes, for braiding, kumihimo and square knot bracelets. It can be intermixed with other cords such as C-Lon Cords or used for micro macrame by itself. The larger size make a very nice simple cording for medallions and pendants. Many of the sizes are great for Bollywood macrame bracelets and micro macrame.
These are the traditional cords used for Shambhala bracelets > See Shambhala Bracelet Kits
The Micro sizes are great choice for tassels especially the Size E of New E > See Tassel Tutorial

Thread Burners - Recommended over lighters for melting the cord ends. All the Chinese Knotting Cord are made of braided nylon with a nylon center core, so they are completely fusible and the ends can be melted. Thread burners are precise and lessen the chance of damaging the work. Regardless be careful not to get burned, work in a well ventilated area and keep thread burners away from children > Thread Burners and Cord Zappers

Many Sizes & Many Colors
Everyone measure cords differently. Our diameters are measured by holding the cord pulled taut above a ruler or caliper. Keep in mind that if the cord is pushed against the ruler it will flatten to a wide diameterr. Expect dye lot and diameter size variations within each categories. To make sure you are ordering the right size > Order samples

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... I have been collecting this cord ever since. Keep in mind that restocking exact colors is not always available, dye lots, cord quality and cord diameter changes- so plan and order accordingly.
