Slate Blue - Kinky Cord - 1.5mm - Hand Spun & Dyed

£ 2.99 each
  • Description

This fine twisted cord has been hand made exclusively for Gina-B Silkworks, using traditional passementerie techniques. 

We have commissioned a range of passementerie cords (known in the trade as 'lines') from a leading passementerie workshop. These beautiful cords and trims can be used to create stunning decorative textiles.

This cord is made by twisting fine viscose rayon strands of different weights twisted together, resulting in a cord that appears to have kinks along the length. This has a width of about 1mm. The cord is then hand dyed.

This type of cord is often seen as a tassel decoration, often 'outlined' with smooth gimp.

This is perfect for a variety of passementerie techniques - especially tassel making. It is also suitable for couching in embroidery, using alongside soutache in jewellery and can be used in weaving and braiding.

Price is per metre

Where possible, lengths over 1m will be cut as a continuous length

Our passementerie range is currently available in a selection of colours that are seen often in traditional passementerie. Below is a colour comparison table for matching to other manufacturer's threads. Please note that this is a guide only, and colours are not exact.
