After trying out several different types of Chinese knotting cord we have finally found one we love. This nylon cord has nice texture that helps to hold knots in place. To keep it from fraying you can melt the ends with a Thread Burner, or use Hypo-Tube Cement or super glue.
I was looking for scarlet--so this tomato, orangey-red does not work for my project. The cord is great, easy to work with, smooth braid--gives you a 4mm braid when working with four-strand kumihimo. It is the only cord I have ordered from this site whose color on the monitor does not accurately reflect the true color.
