Pepperell Braiding cord is made for coiling projects and crafts such as coiled baskets, fiber sculptures and more. Easy to use and works well with other crafting cord such as yarn, jute, cotton rope, and more. The coiling cord is made from 100% paper core bound in a fine polyester mesh knit. We recommend taping off the ends to prevent fray. Large-eye plastic needles are recommended for coiling and durable cutting shears as this cord is quite dense. Made in the USA.
