Cotton Cable Cord


cotton-cable-cord-3-sizesCotton cable cord is a blend of polyester and cotton yarn that is cabled into a 3 strand construction.  This gives the twine an added bulk and increased strength.  This cabled construction makes the twine a firmer construction than other cotton twines.  It is popular in the fishing, toy, advertising and construction trades, where it is commonly used as a chalk or mason line.  The cable cord comes on ½ Lb. and 1 Lb. balls, 2 ½ or 5 Lb. cones. The cotton cable cord can also be offered in cut lengths or pieces; and can be supplied to meet the Mil Spec TT881.
