- Two cords each made up of 18 single brown wool yarns. The s-spun wool yarns have been very loosely Z twisted to form the cord. Each cord was tied off in a long loop with the two loops linked together. There is a knot at the other end of one of the cords. The other cord has yarn wrapped around it and loosely tied approximately 13.5 cm from the knot that ties off the loop. There is a single strand of yellow wool yarn caught up in the knot forming the loop of one of the cords.
