While it may not be big or long enough to make a lasso (but can you imagine how that would look flying through the air), our golden roping cord is just what you need to deck out your next sewing project.
This length of vintage gold metallic tubular cord trim measures approximately 9 yards, 2 feet and 6 inches and is 3/16 inch in diameter. It is made up of gold metallic thread that has been braided around a creamy white colored multi-stranded cord. Of course, you can pull the cream yarn out leaving you with a beautiful golden sheaf. It is in very good condition for its vintage but it hardly has any flaws considering it's age.
We have seen this type of roping cord also called military shoulder board aiguillette.
