I use this for kumihimo cores. Although it is fairly thin, about 1.5 – 2.0mm, so if it is too thin, just use it double, triple or with four thicknesses. I like to do this as it keeps me from having to have a lot of different products on hand. Because it is synthetic, it can be sealed and burned off with your cords when using the Cord Zapper. Great price, less about $0.11 (cents) per yard, a better price than a lot of other products. Also available in White.
