Natural 100% Cotton Macrame String, Unbleached, 3mm and 5mm in 2.5, 5, 10 and 20 pound sizes!


Sometimes unbleached is best! Many truly boho macrame pieces, or the lofty fringe for your weavings are just better suited to cotton string in its closest to natural state, and you need LOTS of it!

I’m so glad now to be offering that option in bulkier spools, 4 DIFFERENT lengths, with cotton grown and and processed in the US.

This gorgeous, Unbleached 100% cotton 3mm and 5mm string is sturdy yet soft, fringes beautifully and is available in 4 different lengths.

2.5 pounds - 1050 feet

2.5 pounds - 525 feet
5 pounds - 1050 feet
10 pounds - 2100 feet
20 pounds - 4200 feet

And if you’re looking to add color to your creation, the bulk and texture matches perfectly with the Bobbiny 3mm and 5mm Single Twist range that I also carry.

NOTE - due to the size of these rolls, they will usually ship separately from other items in your order.

Frequently Asked Questions

What If my package doesn’t arrive?

We take great care to accurately pack and label every package, unfortunately mail theft does happen. Should the package have been incorrectly labeled we will replace your purchase immediately! However, with regret, we cannot assume responsibility for mail theft if tracking indicates it has been successfully delivered.

Will my package come UPSP or UPS?

Most of our shipments will be sent USPS Priority Mail. However, occasionally UPS will be lower in cost. I do reserve the right to ship via UPS where significant savings are available. If a shipping overage has been paid by you, the savings will be credited back.
