Usually it takes 9 feet of string to produce 1 foot of finished lucet cord.

However, I usually add 1 foot to each project for the "tails" on either end

(have to have something to hold onto to make it, right?) Hope that helps.

I'm training in my new recruit and she's discovered a love for her new lucet. She's been making meters and meters of lucet cord and is curious to know...

A. What on earth can she do with all that cord ?


B. If she were to offer it up for bartering, what sort of trades do you think she'd be able to get?

I have used mine to string up a dress, gifted cord in the appropriate colors to Kingdom and Barony to hang awards on, stitched down as trim on a tunic, strung pouches....

I used to use some nice thick cotton string to make lanyards with a slide (once you've got the right length, double the cord you've already made up through the middle of what you're making now) for my hubby when he was fighting. I've done similar with much finer threads for customizable length necklace cords. Just to name a few.

Anything you could do with string, cord, yarn, twine, rope, trim. The only difference is you control the colors and the pattern of those colors. look around and see all the things you use string for, then think how much better it could be if you played with it.
