My main interest is in making 100% cotton strings. The string I would most like to recreate is the string that comes with a Tom Kuhn No Jive. It is type 9? The string is very soft almost like yarn. Maybe some one can point me to the correct material.
I have found a material intended for crochet, but is slightly more rough than I would like. I am also having a problem at the fold point, the strings tends to be very tight and “kinky” sometimes to so much that it can’t be opened for a yo yo. Near the knot end it’s not so bad. I have moved my twist length down form 18 inches to 15, should it go closer?
I have had some mild success, but need some terms defined.
For example, if a string is described as 4 X 2 or 3 x 3 what is the meaning of this term?
What determines type 6 type 8 type 9 and such.
thanks in advance
