I must admit that I received this item over a week ago, but have been wearing it instead of reviewing it, because sadly, reviewing it involves destroying it.
So let's begin
The outer sheath is braided from 32 strands. It is technically possible to unbraid all these strands to give you even more string to play with, but you would have to be a masochist.
But wait, there's more!
The easiest way to separate all the strands is to give the job to someone else. It will keep them busy for a while.
If you do need to use these strands, separate them immediately before you use them, rather than trying to store them for later, because you will end up with a birdsnest rather easily.
As you can see with the result of the separation of the strands, I ended up with a small amount of wastage due to the tangle that was created.
These strands would be suitable for such uses as sutures, fly fishing, fine sewing, and they work great as dental floss.
Breaking Strength of the Individual Components
|135||300||Outer sheath (1x)|
|16||35||Inner yarn (7x)|
|5.3||11.5||Inner yarn strand (21x)|
It's pretty easy to get used to wearing something like this every day, and might just be that one thing you need one day.
Now all I have to do is put it back together...
