they do unweave, tho quickly isn't a word I would associate with unweaving them. I weave these bracelets so that you can remove the outer layer (recovering 9' of cord) and still being able to using the bracelet, tho once the last layer is unweaved the bracelet is destroyed obviously.Do those weaves unzip quickly in an emergency??
Neither have I and I have EDC'ed paracord bracelets for years.One of the manuals I have suggests washing to preshrink the Paracord; I don't know if anyone else does. Ive never found it to be much of an issue.
too right mate...LoLThrud said:@Waveman, you're going to need to get some folders to go with those lanyards....:_risata:
Just a guess but I'm thinking if it was a major issue, more people would have noticed it by now. Bracelet makers would be the first to notice. I do like a good test though. If room temp water does shrink it slightly, it could be a way of tidying up a monkey fist or a Turkish head knot.Thanks Ben. In the pictures the ends of the cord are not sealed. I’m going to test today and see what happens to sealed/unsealed and some different colours. I will do a control with soaking in cold water. I would expect that there would be a difference in the shrinkage between the core and the outer. If that happens then the sealed cord will twist or something.
If you see on the news this evening that there was an explosion in Perth, then you will know it was the something!
