What kind of string do you like best?

hey guys! I’ve been making kandi for a while now, but every string/cord that I’ve tried has been pretty weak and I’ve lost many bracelets that have broke :( Please post below what your favorite string to use is and why! Also, feel free to add me! I love making friends :)

Happy rawring 20s!

I typically go for clear 0.7mm or 0.5mm Stretch Magic cord ! It stretches really well, and knots tend to stay tied, whereas when I use Bead n' Stretch they commonly come undone if I don't glue them.

I only use elastic cord, I like Bingcute as my brand, knots STAY knotted, only have to use 1 square knot and dont even have to use a square ontop of a string connecting knot, makes my pieces look alot cleaner imo

especially for singles, i like to use elastic cord like the type you can find at joann's. found something similar to it with a google search of joann's elastic cord, but i couldn't tell you the brand i use off the top of my head. since it's a little thicker and surrounded by fabric, it doesn't slip out of knots easily and it's strong and durable. on the flipside, it's not clear like most other strings you might use and the knots are larger and more noticeable on cuffs

I use Cousin D.I.Y, it works like a charm! Only downside is since it’s much more stretchy, if you don’t knot it like 4 times really well, it will slip out of the knot

If you get strings from Walmart, strings by Go Create! and Cousin D.I.Y are some of the ones I use. They work great for me

I use "Toner Plastics 0.7mm Clear bead n stretch", I got it off of Amazon! It's already strong but, If you want extra strength it's thin enough to double up the string without it being to bulky or anything. Hope that helps.
