3mm Black Satin Cord - 144 yards #61-749-13-02

SKU 61-749-13-02
Black 3mm Satin Cord, equivalent to a size 2 (heavy) rattail cord. This glossy satin-like nylon cording knots well, is excellent for Kumihimo, and our internal testing indicates that it is colorfast! The ends can be sealed nicely with flame or with a thread burner. If adding beads, you can create a needle by adding a drop of glue and then rolling the tip to a point. We do not recommend using jump rings on this type cord, as they can cause the finish to snag.

Satin-Like Cord

Necklace finishing methods:

  • Single-strand necklaces are normally finished with fold-over crimps.
  • Multistrand necklaces are normally finished with cones or bullet ends (to hide messy ends).


  • This shiny cording is popular for handmade ceramic pendants, and slumped and fused art glass, using glue-on bails.
  • This cord can snag if a jump ring or split ring slides back and forth across it, so instead, use good quality bails that don't have sharp spots. (Aanraku, TierraCast, JBB and our other cast jewelry bails work well.)
