Comparing C-Lon versus S-Lon
Comparing C-Lon versus S-LonComparing C-Lon versus S-Lon

August 2022 > New Post on How to Compare C-Lon and S-Lon Colors

About a year ago one of my customers sent me a chart of the possible color equivalents across the two competing brands of US made bonded nylon cord, I followed up to see how the colors intersect.

Why is it important?

1. Customers have been contacting me looking for C-Lon color equivalents corresponding to an S-Lon color they bought in another store or for colors no longer in production. 

2. Due to global supplies disruption, some C-Lon have been out of stock for a longer period of time. Finding an equivalent across the brands becomes necessary for higher volume customers with immediate production needs who can not wait for a color to be back in stock.

Space Dyed Chinese Knotting Cord

Space Dyed Chinese Knotting Cord is a braided nylon cord dyed with variegated color gradations. The cord is constructed like all the other Chinese Knotting Cords with an outer braided construction and a center cord and has a 0.6mm diameter similar in size to Micro Size G and Size H. The cord is first braided with nylon thread, then it is space dyed in skeins with several colors and/or color gradients creating a pattern around the skein. Many of the skeins are about 50 inch (128 cm) around and space dyed with the same colors on both side of the folded skein so the pattern is mirrored on both sides of the skein and repeats with each turn of the skein. After the dying process, the cord is rinsed and dried. In the last step the cord is rolled on spools.

> 19 Color Variations + 17 Limited Color Variations Group 2 | ~ 0.6 mm Ø | Made and Space Dyed in China

Just like all the other Chinese Knotting Cord with the added attraction of variegated color gradients. Its diameter makes it a great choice for micro macrame, Bollywood bracelets & kumihimo braids. The colors do not bleed when washed with soap and warm water and the cords dry quickly. This cord has a good grit and holds knots well.

Ukraine Relief

May 2022 - We support peace in Ukraine and we have donated weekly to organizations providing relief and help to the Ukrainian people and refugees from the war. For the first 4 weeks we donated 10% of the online store revenues and week 1 & 3 donations went to International Medical Corps for immediate support of the refugees fleeing the war. Week 2 donation went to World Central Kitchen. Both organizations were already on the ground supporting families fleeing the war. Access to medical care and food are necessities and should be a human right everywhere. Week 4 and 5 donations went to Project S.A.V.E. (Salvage All Valuable Equipment), a local Chico CA all volunteer organization. They sent 20 pallets full of medical equipment to Poland. Their goal closely match mine as to reuse, plus all donations go towards cost, not large CEO's salaries. As of week 6 we are changing the way we raise moneys for Ukraine - see more about this below.
