NEW ss 18/2 Lurex Lycra Ribbon Cord. At our physical Handibrand store, the lycra ribbon cord is sold by the kilo. Online, we're offering a 450gr reel of lycra ribbon which is sufficient for a medium-sized crochet bag or medium-sized bag made using the plastic canvas technique. A lightweight cord cut lengthwise, you'll need a size 5 - 7 crochet hook depending on the texture of each color. We recommend you choose the amount you require as the same color tones will not be repeated when stocks run out.
