Mini macrame cord
If you are looking to make smaller projects such as bracelets, necklaces, and earrings then you will love our mini macrame cord.
The same durable strength and viscose flexibility afforded to our larger sizes in a miniature form to make delicate, intricately beautiful mini macrame projects.
At MeriWoolArt we know macramé, so we always use a high cotton content in our cords. We also like to feel that we are doing our bit for the environment and so the cotton we use in our mini macrame cord is 85% recycled and better for the planet.
We know that maramé can take its toll on your hands and so for added softness we use a 15% viscose blend. This makes the cord smooth, far more supple, and easier to work with. It is less prone to tangling and easier to untie too.
Our mini macrame cord is only 2mm thick but can be frayed easily and combs out beautifully into some of the finest threads. For this reason, it makes stunning feathers, tassels, and fringes to add to your designs.
The size and colors
The size as we have said is 2mm, it comes in a longer length than our thicker options at 250 meters. There are ten gorgeous shades to choose from each dyed with non-harmful substances to keep our products OEKO-TEX compliant and safe to use.
Mini macrame DIY projects
There is no end to what our mini macramé cord can be used for. Despite being created with smaller fiddly pieces in mind it can be used to make giant wall hangings if you have the patience.
When knotted together into large pieces it provides impressive tensile strength and so any project you can make with a large cord can be made with a mini cord if you adapt the design.
That said, a mini macrame cord is typically more commonly used for jewelry and decorative work. Here are some project examples that you could try making with MeriWoolArt mini macrame cord
Mini macrame plant hanger
Our mini macramé is deceptively strong, so it can be used for weight-bearing projects like this simple beginner’s mini macramé plant hanger. It is an easy project for beginners, and plenty of fun for someone more experienced at macrame too.
Mini macrame wall hanging
Although a wall hanging is considered a big project that you would tend to buy a thicker cord for, the results of using a mini macramé cord can often be quite exquisite. If you are looking for a longer project or something a little more challenging why not try a mini macrame wall hanging.
Mini macrame dream catcher
Macrame dream catchers are a beautiful staple macrame project. The designs can be as intricate or simple as you want and they provide the perfect opportunity to practice fringing or feather work as well.
Mini macrame tote bag
A tote bag is a great beginner project, and not too time-consuming if you crochet larger holes. Our mini macramé cord is ideal for projects like this and will provide enough strength to carry your groceries.
