Macrame Cord Explained•
Technically, you can make macrame with anything that has multiple long strands, including yarn, string, rope and maybe even cooked spaghetti.
This cotton comes in three main types;
Three-Ply (often referred to as rope)
Single Twist (often referred to as cord)
Braided (referred to as either rope or cord)
Width wise you can get anything from 1mm to 12mm. I mostly use 4-5mm, but if you’re into super detailed, intricate tapestry style pieces then 2-3mm is a good choice and if you're making a larger chunkier wall hanging I'd go for 7mm.
Natural or uncoloured cord is a staple in any makers stash but there is also a huge range of colour and even metallic cord now available.
