    Need help finding cordage

    Looking for cordage for a project I'm making for my wife, it's got to be white, and between 1 and 1.5mm in diameter. She'd like a round braid.

    I found this but it doesn't list diameter.

    Project is non load bearing, so break strength isn't a concern.

    Thanks

    That is listed as size #36. From what I find with google, #36 cord/twine is 2.2mm-2.5mm.

    Yup ^^^
    That's what came to my mind too. Strong, won't stretch, and nice to work with. Plus it's available for cheap at your local hardware store. *Just make sure it's braided, not twisted.*

    Strong, will stretch. Ever watch masons managing their lines? They depend on the stretch.
    YMMV

    Free advice worth what you paid for it. ;-)

    Thank you for the chart! Bookmarking it for future reference (didn't know there was a chart, honestly)

    Thank you all, I'll have to go find some braided masons line, I'll have to go look at TSC, the only other place in town is Ace hardware, and they only sell twisted here.

    Masons line at Lowes or HD is the only thing that comes to mind here.
