Topics: Cord for Knotting

Q.
Many of my customers are looking for 0.7 mm cord to use as the middle thread in knotted Shamballa bracelets. Can you recommend a cord or thread other than polyester? I hope you can help, as this is a question I get almost every day. Kind regards.

A.
Woven round cord is a good option for knotted Shamballa bracelets. It has the look of leather, but is made with biodegradable cotton and knots easily and securely. Waxed cotton is another good choice; this is a tightly woven, easily knotted thread that comes in a wide variety of colors and three different sizes: 0.5, 1 and 2mm. Another thread you can use is Purely Silk™ silk cord. The thickest size available is FFF (.419mm), so this will make a more delicate bracelet.
