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 requirea 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.
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.
