Our full range of macramé making cords are available in both single twist and twisted 3 ply twines, in various sizes. They are made in the UK from 100% premium quality natural unbleached cotton, using traditional methods.
Our single twist cord is made from a single group of many fibres, which are twisted into one. It is very soft and flexible to work with, and the knots created can appear flatter than the 3 ply twist.
Our single twist macramé cord is ideal for creating straight fringes and feathers, as it can be combed without needing to untwist it first, unlike the 3 ply twist. It’s also great for more intricate designs.
Our twisted 3 ply macramé cord is made from 3 groups of twisted fibres, which are then twisted together, giving it a rope like appearance. The cord provides more structure, and holds its shape better when knotted, so the knots stand out more. The 3 ply twist offers added texture and wall hangings can appear thicker and chunkier.
The twisted 3 ply macramé cord is better when more strength is needed, and when untwisted, can create a fabulous wavy fringe effect. Some users have found that it can add depth and detail to a wall hanging, where they have started off with the cord as one piece at the top, giving a chunkier effect, and then untwisted it further down to add more elaborate detail.
This rope is perfect for wall hangings, plant hangers, keyrings, jewellery and all the many other macramé patterns where the popular larks head, square knot, hitches, loop, barrel, spiral and other macramé knots are used.
