What size should I select for my project, the 8 ply or 2 ply?
The 2 ply is approx. 1/8" round. It is commonly used for the decorative weaving on cinches, as well as mecates and reins. The 8 ply is approx. 1/4" and is used for the body of the cinch, breast collars, reins, or mecates. The size you choose for mecates and reins depends mainly on the number of strands you will braid and whether you prefer a finer or heftier look.
NOTE: Alpaca does have a slightly higher loft than our mohair cord.
