This review is from: Black 2mm x 100 yards Rattail Satin Nylon Trim Cord Chinese Knot (Office Product) In the past year, all of my suppliers for 2mm nylon rattail cord have begun shipping cord that is much closer to 1.8 mm than 2mm. As a result, I’ve been shopping around for alternate sources, and tried these spools sold by Craft and Party. The spool I received is labeled as being 1/16″ x100yds, which is more like 1.58mm than it is 2mm. I suppose this may be the new industry standard, and not really Craft and Party’s fault, but some accuracy in labeling would be appreciated. 1/16″ is not equal to 2mm. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 4 of 5 people found the following review helpful Beautiful cord., May 3, 2014 By Dragon Lady Ness-a, in-transit “Ness” (Southwest USA, planet earth) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Black 2mm x 100 yards Rattail Satin Nylon Trim Cord Chinese Knot (Office Product) Ordered this item for knot work for jewelry applications. The cord is nice high quality cord with a beautiful sheen and a good strong black, not washed-out like you sometimes get. It has a nicer satiny sheen than is apparent in the photo. It works very well in my needed applications with just enough stiffness to maintain beautiful knots without collapsing or twisting, but satiny enough to adjust the knot’s placement and tightness easily. I noticed on this color that I have to be a bit more careful to get a good grip on it before pulling and make sure my nails don’t have any rough edges so as not to snag and pull this color, but not really a problem with a bit of forethought. Ends heat seal well and accepts PVC glue very well. Does not hold as well with cyanoacrylamide. A very good value, plus this company (Craft and Party) was very timely in shipping and delivery. I’m sure I will be ordering more from them in the future. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 3 of 4 people found the following review helpful The ends singe/seal. Perfect!, September 5, 2014 By Vaughan “Metaphysician, Soap maker, web desig… (CONWAY, SC, United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Black 2mm x 100 yards Rattail Satin Nylon Trim Cord Chinese Knot (Office Product) This cord is exactly what I hoped it would be when I ordered it. Of major interest to me (and that I did not find mentioned in any other reviews) is that the ends can be singe/sealed (if you hold the end to a lighter or flame it will melt a tiny ball at the end of the cord). It would take a lot more time (and an additional product) to construct the necklaces I’m making if I had to seal the ends. I never would have thought of measuring the thickness of the cord except that it is mentioned in some other reviews so I did. Mine sure looks like 2 mm to me. It is without doubt fatter than 1/16″ (1.58 mm). Unless your application uses machinery or is really exacting I think you’d be happy with this cord. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
