Allow us to customize your new pendant with an adjustable cord type of your choosing. This one is hemp, black and 1.5 mm. Hemp cord is made from the bast fiber (outer bark) of the hemp plant. Bast fibers are first processed into yarn by twisting together groups of individual fibers into plies. Then, these single plies of yarn are twisted together in the opposite direction to make a thicker and stronger yarn. Various plies of yarn are twisted to form an individual stand. Finally, its polished with either paraffin wax, beeswax or vegetable starch (wheat, corn, or potato) to protect the underlying fibers.
