Our original sinew supplier had to close their doors unexpectedly. We know there are just some things we can not live without. Synthetic Sinew, to us, is one of those items, as it is so very useful for Tie-dye and Shibori. So, here's what we found. It's white so no more worries about it potentially staining the fabric. It has an approx. 70-75 lb tensile strength and can be split into about 5 strands (which is identical to what we sold). 100% wax coated Polyester (so no deer harmed in the making) and now available in 1 oz rolls (approx. 120 ft.) and 8 oz rolls (approx. 960 ft.)
Synthetic 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. 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. Great for Shibori pole wrapping and other techniques as well.
Not to mention made here in the US. Not too bad if you ask us.
