What’s old is new again and our Red Cotton covered heavy gauge cable. Now you can enjoy the same style as our lamp wire in a 15 gauge / 3-conductor cable, perfect for making extension cords or adding some style to your tool or appliance restoration. Whether your project calls for a nostalgic look or modern flair, our rayon covered wires will do the trick. Whether your style is rustic, vintage or industrial, these cotton wires are sure to give your project an authentic look and feel, but still elegant for today’s modern designs.
Our wire is priced "By the Foot". Enter the length (feet) you require in the quantity box. If your project requires 10ft, enter quantity 10.
Our wires come ready to use. Just cut to size, strip, and connect 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.
What's the difference between Cotton, Rayon, Raw Yarn and Linen?
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.
