Raspberry Waxed Cord
I dyed my Pine Needles a wine color and I found this Raspberry Waxed Cord was perfect with them. I used a spiral stitch and my stitches were tight so I ordered another skein half way through. It came in a couple of days and I met my deadline. Thanks, Maine Thread

Splash of color
The raspberry color of this cord is more of a muted tone - not bright pink or red, but a simple in-between. It works nicely with the orange cord and is perfect for an autumn-themed bracelet or jewelry piece!
