What is a 3 ply macrame cord?
To put it very simply, the 3 ply refers to the number of individual threads that make up the cord. A 3 ply macrame cord is a very popular go-to type of cord for macrame projects. It is easy to use and can be untwisted and untied with ease. Especially handy if you are a beginner who may make a few mistakes, to begin with.
When undone the triple nature of the strings gives it a curly appearance, which is pretty when you are fringing.
It has more flexibility than a rope or cord with 4,5,or 6 ply or anything braided. This means it is gentler in your hands. Despite the flexibility, the trio of cords remains strong and can bear a surprising amount of weight when knotted together.
Our 3 ply macrame cord options are all made from sustainably sourced, 85% recycled cotton blended with 15% viscose to make it more supple. All materials are OEKO-TEX certified including the dyes used and spools.
The Size and Colors
Choose between 4 or 6mm 3 ply in 20 different colors. Each shade complements the next so feel free to get creative and mix and match with your next macramé piece.
