Organic cotton cord 1mm thick for jewelry making, macrame and sewing projects. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and dyed with chemical free dye. After the dying process the water in the dye bath is so clean it can be returned to the rivers and streams with no dye particles remaining. This product is a tubular braided cord made of 8 strands of 2/26 certified organic cotton that gives some firmness and enables the cord to hold its its shape. There is no wax on it but you can coat it yourself with organic wax to protect it if you wish. The cotton is grown in Turkey and then braided into cord in a mill in the USA. This is a 100% certified organic cotton cord available in 1mm and 2mm thickness.
The cord you receive will be cut into one continuous length unless low stock or length cut from different spools require tie knots to join. The main photo illustrates a 5 yard length on a card, but it will not be packaged in the same way it will come in a coiled bundle.
Please note that the cord cannot be returned or exchanged once we have cut it to the length you require, once it has been cut it is yours.
Color shades vary between computer monitors so please keep in mind cord may not be the same exact shade of color you see on your screen.
Fair trade product? – No
It is safe for babies to chew? – Yes, ok for baby teething jewelry
Is it strong? – It is stronger than regular cotton due to the tubular braid but be aware it will not last forever due to it being a natural fiber with no wax coating.
Good for necklace cord? – 2mm is best for a single necklace cord, 1mm is good for macrame to make the necklace chain stronger.
Can I put a pendant on it? – Yes just be aware a metal clasp may wear away the cord over time, natural findings work best.
