Kumihimo Rayon Gimp Gold or “KRGG” is a super fun fiber to use for braiding. Each hand dyed skein is unique and no two skeins are alike. It is hard to capture the gold sparkle in the photos The Kumihimo Rayon Gimp Gold, which comes from Europe, is a round medium weight fiber consisting of a cotton core wrapped with fine rayon thread and a fine Gold thread to form a sheath. When braided, KRGG possesses a beautiful shimmer.  The Kumihimo Rayon Gimp braids nicely on the Marudai as well as the Disk. I highly recommend using a Disk that has already been used with thick yarns. You don't want to use a brand new disk with tight slots as that could create too much friction. Cords braided on the Marudai tend to finish thinner in diameter and the braids crafted on the disk tend to finish a little thicker. Each skein is approximately 8 meters long. The KRGG is fairly durable but I do handle it with a little bit more care than, say, the satin cord. I love this new fiber. It is simply magical as the braid grows and the variegated colors take on their own character. It is also great combined with Petite Satin Cord and Shimmer Tubular yarn. Have fun!
