EGYPTIAN COTTON - LINEN FINISH.
(Not available from any other source.)
Egyptian cotton is noted through out the world as one of the finest materials available. We are proud to be able to offer our customers this fine material for modelling purposes. All the following threads are 100% Egyptian cotton and are in there natural unbleached colour. This material is over 40 years old and is renowned for its quality and was long thought to have disappeared, luckily the company that supplies me has found this treasure hiding in there stock room. I have now bought there total stock to secure this material for modellers, but sadly there is not a lot of it.

I am starting to run out of some of these amazing rigging cords. I have re-arranged those I have and in some instances I have reasonable stocks left, but they will not last for ever! If you are wanting some my advise is get it now to avoid disappointment.
BLACK NYLON RIGGING CORDS.
These are two superb rigging cords. They are both stranded nylon cords and make very realistic "tarred" effect ropes. They both glue and tie well and can also be used as whipping cord on larger hawser cables etc. Many uses within marine modelling as well as other hobbies. Both these cords are very strong for there size.

POLYCOTTON RIGGING CORD.
This is one of the few materials that we carry that is pre-dyed, a nice rich medium brown colour. It is a very popular choice with customers, it has low lint charactaristics. Ideal for whipping our hawser cables with as it gives a very nice and unusual contrast when whipped onto a cable.

VINTAGE 100% BRITISH COTTON - NEW
I have just aquired some very old British manufactured cotton threads that are ideal for fine rigging cords or for whipping large ropes and hawsers. These cottons are a one off, they are approx 30 years old and are available is certain colours only, these are very useful to marine modellers. I have a very limited quantity of this material and once it is sold out I can't get any more, so if you would like some I advise you to order some while I have it. As with most good quality cottons the lint on the material is at a minimum but is still present slightly. This can easily be removed by waxing the cord with some bee's wax, this is available on line from most good haberdashery suppliers.
The cotton is 0.2mm thick.
