Linen Cording Works Macrame Wonders

Hi there lovely Macrame Lovers,

I thought I would share a snippet from my book re different kinds of cording you can use, which may serve to open up even more creative options for you as you are happily knotting.

Linen:

Linen cording comes in a wide variety of colors and weights which makes it very desirable for many knotting patterns. Linen has the strength and diversity that many other types of cording don’t have, making it great for Macramé projects that need to be strong and durable. Linen cording is often used in Macramé wall hangings and looks great when combined with other types of cording, such as cotton and silk. The one thing that you need to keep in mind is that linen cording will fray easily so you’ll have to be very sure to finish off the ends of your project carefully.
