Artificial Sinew is waxed polyester thread which is waterproof and super strong, making it a great alternative to rubber bands for tie dye & Shibori. You can split it for finer thread and when you wrap it around your folds, it cinches onto itself and stays tight. Great for making crisper lines and getting more control over your tie dye designs. The white colour of our sinew means less potential for staining your fabric too!
The FLAT sinew has an approx. 70-75 lb tensile strength and can be split into about 5 strands and is available in 1 oz rolls (approx. 120 ft.) and 8 oz rolls (approx. 960 ft.).
The ROUND sinew has an approx. 100lb. test and can also be split into about 5 strands and is now available in 1 oz rolls (approx. 81 ft.) and 8 oz rolls (approx. 648 ft.)
