Artificial Sinew - The Thread Exchange

Artificial sinew is sometimes called imitation sinew, simulated sinew, or fake sinew. This Buying Guide explains sinew's uses and describes its characteristics.
Artificial Sinew Uses - Artificial sinew is great for crafts projects that require a strong, flat, waxy thread or cord. These include Native American crafts, basket weaving, dream catchers, leatherwork, beading, gourd crafting,  wrapping pine needle rims, and moccasins.

Characteristics - Artificial sinew is sometimes called imitation sinew, simulated sinew, or fake sinew. It comes from manmade fibers such as polypropylene and nylon. Unlike natural sinew it has a uniform waxy texture, comes in many colors, and can be cut to any length. The sinew is flat and ribbon-like--not round. It is about 1/16th inch wide and has a 50-pound tensile strength. You can easily split artificial sinew into thinner strips as shown in the picture.
Real Sinew - We do not sell real sinew. You can find it by Googling  "natural sinew -artificial" for sellers. Slaughterhouses, traditional butchers, tanners, and hunters are also great sources if you have the time and connections.
