Information about Linhasita String
Linhasita is a Brazilian waxed polyester cord that is very durable,washable, and burnable. It is a perfect material for all types of macrame jewelry, and the only one I use for my macrame pieces.
In addition to micro macrame jewelry, Linhasita cord can also be used for leather, shoes, sewing, and a whole host of other crafts.
This waxed polyester cord is very easy to handle and burns together at the ends; creating a clean look, even when cords have been added, cut, or removed . It doesn’t fray, even after years of use. It is washable and water resistant. The color and design stays no matter what you do.
Artist’s Statement about Linhasita
As a long standing macrame artist, I can honestly say that Linhasita cord has dramatically increased the quality, durability, and professional look of my macrame jewelry. I started using embroidery floss as a teenager, and then moved to waxed linen and hemp as I got older. I found that my jewelry often looked frayed, the color changed, they smelled when wet, and I wasn’t able to make the ends I desired. I looked all over for the professional look I had been searching for here in the USA, but found nothing.
Then, my mother-in-law sent some Linhasita cord from Peru. I knew it was the cord for me the minute I felt it. It’s light, but durable. Waxed for water and fray resistance, I have found nothing more durable than this cord. Most importantly, the cords can be burned together to create a seamless look when ends are present or cords need to be added.
