Question: Can you use cotton yarn for macrame?

What kind of yarn do you need for macrame?

Medium Ropes, 4mm-7mm are perhaps most commonly used, a great size for macramé beginners, more sturdy than the smaller ropes and the perfect size for plant hangers, wall hangings, furniture, lanterns, curtains, rugs, etc. We use 5mm 3ply rope for most of our projects.

Is yarn good for macrame?

Macrame is a versatile fiber craft that can use any material possible that you can knot. Knitting yarns, just like other string materials, can be used for macrame.

What cord is best for macrame?

The most common rope for macrame is twisted three-ply cotton, which is both strong and fringes into a lovely wavy pattern. Some braided six-ply rope is also available, but I’d recommend sticking to three-ply options unless you need a lot of strength.
