Topic: Satin cord for ring leader (Gregory Wilson)
Message: Posted by: stevie c (Apr 9, 2021 04:42AM)
Hi all,

I'm thinking of picking up some satin cord to perform ringleader. I wondered what diameter of cord people on MC had used / recommended?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Gregory Wilson uses velvet cord in Ringleader. Do you mean that or satin cord?

Hi Nicholas. Well so far I've been trying this with whatever cord (laces!!) I had lying around. I guess what I'm asking is what others like to use, have found to be the best/ easiest to work with etc?

Thanks for replying,

Steve

Velvet cord probably works best. If you search Ebay, it’s not too hard to find. The width is pretty standard, about 1/4”. If you pull out the center, it becomes more pliable and the moves are easier to perform.

It is easier to purchase this cord from Walmart's fabric department, or any fabric store. They all sell it by the foot.

Thank you very much for your help guys....I'll pick up some 1/4 inch velvet cord.

The reason I mentioned Ebay is that my experience is that fewer and fewer fabric shops keep it in stock.

Yep I went for the ebay route ... ordered a metre of 7mm and a metre of 5mm. Will give both diameters a try.

This is what I use but it seems impossible to find.

Simplicity® 3/8" Velvet Tubing Cord

This would be about 2.5 mm thinner than the one I use.
