If you're looking for a genuinely ethical and sustainable cord for all your macrame needs, consider this.

Our 3mm 3ply cotton rope is made from deadstock textile waste and surplus yarn in a family factory near Barcelona. 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. The result is a beautifully versatile, strong material for macrame and beyond.

Whether new to macrame or more experienced, we suggest this rope has a wide range of applications - it's firm enough to practice getting your knots right, and hits that sweet spot of being a sturdy, structured rope with great twist definition, and at a thickness that will allow for a few smaller projects such as table runners, plant hangers etc. It's a good lighter weight rope making it suitable and economical for clutches and bags, and will also work well as a thick warp for bigger weaving projects. 

It will knot up beautifully and can be easily unraveled or loosened if you wish, to create tasseled, frayed ends. Alternatively, consider using it for knitting and crochet - think floor rugs, bowls and baskets using anywhere from 12-20mm hooks.

Each colour batch is unique so be sure to buy sufficient quantities for your project, as perfect colour matches cannot be guaranteed from batch to batch.
