8mm 130ply recycled cotton string natural 1.5kg

by Barcelona, Catalonia Spain


You're looking for the stuff that's chunky and lush and unravels if you want it to? Here you go! Think of it like a regular cotton string, but much, much fatter.

A genuinely ethical and sustainable medium for all your macrame needs. 8mm single twist, aka 130 ply cotton cord is made from reclaimed textile waste and surplus yarn in a family factory on the outskirts of Barcelona, Catalonia/Spain.

Soft and a little bit delicate to work with, this cord is made from a finer base yarn than our Australian cotton twist. It will knot up beautifully and can be easily unravelled or loosened. Use it for weaving as much as macrame - or go all out and crochet or knit up something bulky and beautiful.

By breaking down reclaimed textile and yarn waste back into combed cotton fibre, colours are blended and respun into new thread. There is no dyeing involved in this process.
