This soft 8mm stringrope is part of our well known Mediterranean Line and it comes in many colors. We sell it next to our well known 5mm, 45 plies stringrope.
It is made in Spain by a small family owned manufacturer. The rope is made of cotton combined with linen, so a natural fiber, and it is made out of recycled materials. Because we (and they!) care about the environment.
This listing is the 8mm, 130 plies stringrope in Linen.
You can see all colors on the pictures. I also added some color comparisons for those colors that are alike. We tried to represent the colors in the pictures as accurately as possible but still, colors may vary on different computers and in different lighting conditions. If something is still unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me!
PLEASE NOTE: if you bought the 5 or 8 linen before; this is a NEW linen and the color is a bit different; a bit more grey, darker rustic shade to it than the previous one. Still with these gorgeous bits of linen intertwined throughout though!
Also, the previous cone of 8mm linen had just 120m and this is 200m; thus the price difference.
On the 4th and 5th picture you can see the 8mm linen next to the 5mm; there you see the color difference.
This stringrope, or single twisted stringrope, is a 130 plies (!) stringrope which means, 130 fibres are twisted into a single strand. Stringrope is softer than twisted or braided macramerope and it is easier to fray and gives you that awesome fluffy (and straight) fringe.
It is made of a natural fiber in Spain. I is a combination of cotton with linen. Because we care for our environment, we choose to work with this manufacturer as they make this stunningly soft rope from recycled cotton. Because it is a natural product, the exact length differs a bit per cone (due to the stretch) - therefore it is listed as 'about ... meters' (could be a bit more or a bit less).
And we now also added hand spun bundles of this incredibly soft rope in 10 and 20 meter! For those cases where you don't need or want the full 120m. For example if you just want to add some fluffy tassels to your 5mm macrame wallhanging or if you just need a little for some texture in your weaving or macramweave.
Prefer a stringrope with a little less fluffiness? Check out the listing with our 45 plies stringrope! It is an 5mm thick stringrope and there is 100, 200 or 500 meter on a cone.
