I love this cord. I had previously purchased similar cord from another vendor, but their color selection was very poor. I was delighted when I found out that Artbeads started carrying this type of cord and that their color selection was so beautiful. This cord is not stiff, like some waxed cords may be. However, it holds its shape and it has a lovely discreet sheen to it. I dip the tips in clear nail polish, to make them a little stiff so I can pass the cord through beads. I also use a tiny dot of glue on end knots.I use the 1mm size and I am making very dainty macrame bracelets with this cord. When I want a thicker bracelet, I double the cord. I also use it to make delicate necklaces. The first time, I purchased several colors: brown, purple, green, etc. My very favorite color is strawberry pink. Today I am coming back for more.
