Description

This listing is for an interesting, hand dyed, gimp cord that has a beautiful matte finish. The inside cotton core is wrapped with rayon fibers. It will add embellishment drama to any of your fiber art, jewelry, hand stitching, and mixed media projects. When stitched on fabric by hand or machine it makes swirling lines, circles, and stems for a very dramatic effect. Beautiful, large, bouillon stitches and French Knots can be made with this cord. It is sure to provide a lovely accent to any of your textile projects.

This cord is perfect for stringing your focal beads. Glass bead makers buy it to hang their handmade beads. To finish the ends and add clasps, place a dab of glue on the ends, add crimps to cover the ends, and attach the jump rings and clasps.

CAUTION: MATTE CORD SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR MACRAMÉ, KNOTTING, OR ANY PROJECT THAT WILL INVOLVE PULLING THE CORD TIGHTLY. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU DO NOT TUG OR PULL IT VERY HARD WHEN WORKING WITH IT BECAUSE TOO MUCH MANIPULATION CAN CAUSE THE RAYON FIBERS TO SEPARATE FROM THE COTTON CORE. ATTACHING IT TO ART QUILTS, MIXED MEDIA ART PROJECTS, AND USING IT TO STRING PENDENTS AND LARGE HOLE BEADS WILL CAUSE NO DAMAGE TO THE RAYON FIBERS.

HOW TO USE:
Jewelry: String large hole and focal beads
Hand Stitch: Appliqué, Couch, Embroider
Machine Stitch: Zig Zag and other decorative stitches

CARE: All of my hand-dyed fibers have been pre-washed to remove any excess dye, but before placing next to white or light colors:
rinse in salt, Synthrapol, or vinegar
IRONING: If yarn becomes wrinkled, a shot of steam is all that is
needed

Uses:
Art Quilts
Costumes
Crazy Quilts
Doll Making
Embellishment
Home Décor
Jewelry Making
Journals
Mixed Media
Paper Arts
Scrapbooking
Textile Art
Wearable Art
