Now you can enjoy our Black Cotton cloth covered electrical wire as a switched cordset. Each switched cordset comes with your choice of plug and matching inline thumb switch attached to one end of the cord. The the other end of the cord is cut and ready to connect to your lamp, fan, or any other electrical device in need of a little style and sophistication.
As every switched cordset is made to order, we make customizing easy...
Our cordsets come ready to use. Just cut to size, strip, and connect the unfinished end to your light or appliance. We are not able to recommend wire gauge and suggest you consult a qualified electrician to ensure that the gauge of the wire you select can safely support the electrical load of your lamp or small appliance over the length of wire you are using.
It really comes down to the look you are trying to achieve.
Aesthetically, cotton, linen, and raw yarn's matte covering is more appropriate on appliances and utilitarian lighting. Rayon, with its silk-like shine, is ideal for more elegant lamps, radios, phonographs, etc. With regard to durability, all of our coverings wear very well over time.
