1/2 inch (12.7 mm) Paper Coiling Cord 100 Feet (30.48 meters)


(1 review) Write a Review

Basketry and coil paper art is a simple and pleasurable craft.  Baskets can be made from scrap yarns, fabrics, paper (we recommend tissue paper or other fine weight material,) and macrame cord.  Beyond basketry, the paper cord can be used to make jewelry,  piping for furniture and home decor crafts, or used as collage material in arts & crafts or classroom settings.

The coiling cord is made from 100% paper core bound in a fine polyester mesh knit.  We recommend taping off cutting points to prevent fray.  Use with your favorite sport, worsted or jumbo weight yarns. Large-eye plastic needles are recommended for coiling and durable cutting shears as this cord is quite dense.

Paper cord is measured by the diameter thickness of the cord. The 1/2 inch (13mm) paper cord is sold as a 100 foot (30.5 meter) coil.  The coil contains enough material to create about 3 medium (7 inch wide x 4 inch tall) wrapped coil baskets.

Made in the USA.

    Basket Coiling 1/2 inch

    Posted by Susan on Aug 1st 2021

    This coiling is perfect for the fabric wrapped baskets I make. Soft enough to be gentle on hands (as opposed to tougher ones I’ve used) yet hard enough to create a firm basket which holds up well. Reasonably priced. I highly recommend.
