Waxed Cord
I was a little disappointed in this waxed cord. It has a rougher feel (to my fingers) than other waxed cords, also, it tends to untwist more easily, therefore making it harder to control the tension while I'm working. After I snip the ends, they unravel, and this isn't a heavily waxed cord, so the ends are not sticking together, making my finished pieces a little less polished.
