    White - Twisted Cord - Fine - Hand Spun & Dyed

    This super-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 twisted fine viscose rayon strands together resulting in a classic 'rope' design - this one with has a width of about 1mm. The cord is then hand dyed.

    Twisted cord is also known a cable cord & spun cord

    This is perfect for a variety of passementerie techniques, including grappé and knots and of course tassel making. This fine size has been commissioned especially for button making - fine gimp has been used in passementerie buttons for centuries. It is also suitable for couching in embroidery, using alongside soutache in jewellery and is great for braiding and beading.

    Price is per metre

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