Fringe and Free
This flexible and soft cord is great for making plant hangers, wall hangings, and so many other macrame projects. Hand-cranked by me, into a convenient center-pull ball "cake" (a real treat to work with!). Since these are smaller than our original cord cakes, we named them "cupcakes". Cupcakes can also be purchased individually here.
The flexibility in this cord makes it easy on the hands. It will hold a knot well, and it also has some give to it, making projects that need many tight knots more comfortable to do.
It is 4 ply, which makes it a beautiful cord to work with if you want to have any wavy fringe in your pieces. For example, once finishing a wall hanging, the strands below the knots can be untwisted and the cord is left with a crimped and twisted curl, adding even more depth of texture to the fiber art piece.
This is the cord I use when making all of my cotton plant hangers, coasters, and most of my wall hangings.
