What exactly is nylon?
Nylon is a polymer developed in the first decade of the 20th century in the United States. Initially, toothbrushes and stockings were made of it. Only later they began to be used in many industries. These synthetic fibers are widely used because of their very high tensile strength and easy dyeing. Due to these properties, the nylon string is a semi-finished product with durable colors. What's more, it is slightly flexible, which makes it somewhat "forgiving" for errors in measurements. It is a hot-melt material, making it easy to protect your design by burning the end of the string with a lighter.
How to use a nylon cord
Nylon is a good drawstring material for macrame bracelets. It can be a problem for novice craftsmen due to its slipperiness. So remember to tie each knot well. It is flabby, which makes it easy to intertwine between the fingers. The nylon cord is also suitable for shamballa bracelets. It gives them an interesting structure and a delicate shine. We primarily associate the nylon string with weaving techniques, but often its small diameter allows it to be easily combined with pendants and beads.
