Product Description

Flat Sinew is a flat, waxed polyester thread that is waterproof, rot proof, resistant to stretch, and extremely strong. It has a very high tensile strength for it’s size, it doesn't stretch when wet like string does, and because of the wax you can tie things up very tight. This makes Flat Sinew a great alternative to rubber bands for Tie-dye. The 70 pound flat sinew can be separated into five smaller threads simply by pulling the ends apart. Sinew strands can be hand braided or woven together. Flat sinew is featured in our popular Tie Dye 101 DVD series for ease of use and the ability to tie clear and/or complex patterns. It comes in 60 or 900 ft lengths. It is also excellent for use with delicate fabrics which can be damaged by rubber bands. Plus, Flat Sinew won't get old, dry and brittle like rubber bands will over time. If you notice some yellowish residue don't worry, it's not permanent, just give it a good wash with some Synthrapol and that should do the trick.

Color of sinew may vary from shipment to shipment. 

Made in: INDIA (IN)

There are ties you can make with sinew that are nearly impossible with rubber bands. It's a bit tough to work with at first but it gets a lot easier with practice. I use both sinew and rubber bands each for different situations.

I used rubber bands for years doing tie-dye but I find that I prefer the tension control that the sinew gives.For real tight ties I wrap the sinew around the body of my washable marker and pull. It's better than cutting your finger.

This is fun to use and works much better than rubber-bands when you are trying to tie something large. I use plastic to wrap my tie dye up with to let it set and this does turn the plastic yellowish were it is in contact with the flat swine but I have not had any problems with it changing the color of the clothing yellow.

This is a great alternative to rubber bands for tie dye. It is so much easier to place your ties when you use these. I'll never use another rubber band for tie dye.

This is great stuff. It's wider than others I've used and has more wax. You don't need to tie it you just wrap 3 times in the same place and pull tight which makes it lock. Residue washes out with Synthropol or dawn dish washing liquid.

It's good for very specific designs but I find that rubberbands are still the best way for me to teach beginners.

This is great stuff. Just sticky enough to make tie dye easy. The sinew sticks to its self while you are tying the knots so they stay tight. The big roll is a great deal. I like being able to wrap the tie more than once. Thank you Dharma.

Works good sometimes hard to grab on to and it will definitely leave evidence u used it.. that is if you were tying knots and tightening them. The flat design has its benefits but one down fall is the cutting into your fingers after prolonged use.
