Chinese Knotting Cord 

Chinese Knotting Cord is a round cord made from nylon that is braided, not twisted.  It has a core cord running through its center which helps to give the cord its stiffness and maintain its round shape.  It has a beautiful grip to it, holds the knots tightly and its ends can be sealed with a flame or thread burner.

Chinese Knotting Cord traditionally only comes in two sizes .8mm and 1.5mm.  As this cord has increased in popularity, it is now available in whole variety of sizes and colors!  Same colors in different sizes are a close match which gives added versatility to your designs. 

Please note:  Diameters are approximate and colors can vary from dye lot to dye lot so plesae take this into account when ordering.   Size samples and color samples are available if you need them.
