Use it as an accent fringe or tassel to contrast with your 5mm rope or try knitting or crocheting with it. Or imagine your favorite wall hanging or plant hanger pattern in this jumbo string for a wonderfully exaggerated upgrade! 


Now made with 100% Recycled Cotton! We are so excited to be working with a manufacturer that values sustainability.

They've been working tirelessly to provide us with the same quality rope and cord you are used to derived from 100% pre-consumer textile factory waste. In this scenario, pre-consumer waste refers to cotton fiber scraps that textile factories end up with when manufacturing garments and it is recycled before it is used by the consumer. This means that there is still no harmful chemicals used in creating our cotton cord.

*As we transition this product to 100% Recycled Pre Consumer Waste Cotton, there are some colors that we have a back stock of non-recycled cotton inventory that we are working through. Our most recent shipment that arrived from our manufacturer was 100% recycled cotton and we are working towards all variants being 100% recycled cotton throughout 2022.

**Lengths are approximate and may vary slightly from spool to spool

***Please note that even though we do our very best to display our colors as accurately as possible, actual colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. In addition there may be slight color variation between different manufacturing batches; exact color-matching of older and newer yarn may not be possible.
