What is Paracord?

Paracord (also known as Parachute Cord) is a lightweight, nylon kernmantle (inner core protected by a woven outer sheath) rope originally used in the military for parachute suspension lines and utility rope. Veteran’s found thousands of other uses for paracord as time went on, including fishing line, survival gear, shoe laces, belts and so much more. 550 Paracord is one of the toughest, most dependable cords available.

The smooth texture of the rope comes from the 32-strand interwoven nylon sheath. Encased in the sheath are 7 nylon inner strands, both of which contribute to the cords 550-pound tensile strength. Another bonus of paracord is these versatile inner strands that can be removed any time a narrower cordage is needed, such as fishing line, sutures, and snares.

    550 paracord

    Posted by Cece on Jun 1st 2021

    Bought an aluminum folding lawn chair from an estate sale. The webbing was deteriorating. Removed the old webbing and restrung the seat and back with paracord by following the youtube video provided. It turned out beautifully! I was impressed with how great it looks. The cord was easy to use even at long lengths of several hundred feet of double stranded cord. Just keep it laid out as long as possible without piling it up (I ran it through the length of the house and back). Comb the strands with your fingers about 3 times for 4 foot lengths while weaving to prevent bunching.

    I ordered the midnight blue, acid purple, and black. The colors were beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. I used it to make a dog collar that turned out great.
