We are ridiculously excited to be now stocking Macrame Rope from proudly British Wool Couture Company in two widths and seven beautiful colours. Wool Couture came about when founder and co-owner, Claire, swapped a high profile and pressured life of NHS Director to pursue her passion for knitting.
The Wool Couture cotton macrame rope is premium grade 100% pure cotton and is smooth and gentle on your hands. It is perfect for making your wall art, plant hangers, curtains, jewellery and can also be used for sewing rope bowls.
If you haven’t yet tried macrame, we suggest you get your hands on some of the rope to start your projects over the festive season! The rope is 3 ply twisted cotton which means you can unravel the ends to make beautiful tassels and fringes. The Macrame rope is available in 3mm or 5mm in a range of colours including the natural unbleached cream, coral, olive green, aqua, denim blue, grey and black. Find our whole macrame section of the shop here.
