Chinese Knotting Cord 

Chinese Knotting Cord is a round cord made from nylon that is braided, not twisted.  It can also be called nylon braided cord.   It has a core cord running through its center which helps to give the cord its stiffness and maintain its round shape.  It has a beautiful grip to it, holds the knots tightly and its ends can be sealed with a flame or thread burner.  

We import all of our cord directly from China and Taiwan and carry one of the largest selections of this cord (sizes and colors) on the market today.


Chinese Knotting Cord traditionally only comes in two sizes .8mm and 1.5mm.  As this cord has increased in popularity, it is now available in whole variety of sizes and colors!

Please note:  Diameters are approximate and colors vary slightly from dye lot to dye lot so please take this into account when ordering.   Size samples and color samples are available if you need them.

Use for micro macrame, shamballa bracelets, bead crochet, knitting, bead weaving, tatting, crochet and more.. Colors of the same name match across the sizes for added creativity.    

Not a jewelry designer?  Chinese knotting cord is also great for use with the lego crane truck, wind chimes, book bindings and even purse handles.
