Maybe, hopefully someone will know. I am looking for some "black cord 0.30mm monofilament." It's to place some whiskers on a cat amigurumi. What I keep getting in my searches is fishing line.

Is there something else that maybe I could use that is not flimsy but it has to be black? Thank you

You might check at Jo-Ann's if you have one nearby..or perhaps on-line in the jewelry dept.

There are some fishing lines that are black! I use the small thin stuff (8 lb test) at work all the time. It would make great whiskers! Go to the fishing dept. of a sports store and check it out.

Try Hobby Lobby's web site or ACMoore. Those might be your best bets, but do try the outdoor store websites, like Gander Mt, Bass Pro shops. If anyone has it they might.

Thank you all. I checked Joann'seven Hobby Lobby, Bass Pro and Michael's...no luck. Next time I go to Wally's I will check them.

How about taking a few strands out of your broom.

Try Fire Mountain Gems. They have a large variety of cords in different weights and colors.

I would think that a dollar store brush the kind that has bristles would work.. if they are long enough..

black crochet cotton works but you have to stiffen it up a bit with Elmer's glue. Glue will be invisible when it dries.

Dollar store and Harbor Freight carry 4" skinny black zip ties. You can catch the thick part on the inside and sew a couple of stitches to keep from losing the stiff black part. You can trim them shorter and cut to taper them skinnier, too.

Maybe some kind of fishline, maybe the cord used for string trimmers, maybe bristles from a broom.

Use black jewelry wire. You will find in any store that sells beads and supplies, JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby. It doesn't cost much for a spool.

The monofiliment is the best thing I think....the cats whiskers will stand up well. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
