The new corset lace is a flat braid corset lace made of 100% NYLON so it's got a really nice sheen! It measures about 3/16" wide (5mm) and is sold by the meter (which is 3" longer than a yard) or by the spool (183 meters/200 yards).
This is a really pretty and strong corset lacing cord. Nylon is a material that can be dyed but we have not tested this yet. 65 cents a meter or $91.00 a spool!

To finish the tips...just melt them using the flame from a candle or lighter.
