Our DIY Fabric Wire by the Foot 16 g. in black is a specialty wire that has limited applications but is ideally suited to create extension cords. However, this wire is not intended to be used in lighting applications. For your convenience, we sell it by the foot, so you can order as much or as little as you need.  

This heavy-duty 16 gauge color cord is SJT, has 3 conductor wires, and is rated for up to 300V. Each cord has 3 wires surrounded by a jacket and a thermoplastic insulated cover and is finished with a braided rayon cloth. We recommend ordering 1-2 feet more than you need to compensate for length cuts and wire stripping. 

It is important to note that this product is not designed for compatibility with our sockets, canopies or other lighting accessories. If you are looking to build a light fixture please shop our selection of 18g. SVT wire. With all lighting projects and DIY fixture assembly, we always recommend consulting a licensed electrician.

For traceability reasons on UL Listed products, we cannot accept returns for cut-to-order wire. As there can be various monitor settings and calibrations, colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen, so we recommend that you order a sample to see the color in person. It is important to confirm that the specifications and color of this wire are suitable for your project prior to ordering.

    The wire is very good

    The wire is very good quality. I was able to adapt it to my hanging pendant lights and they look like new.

    I want to give a special thanks to Jordan who was very helpful.

    Great experience.

    The product I received was just as described online. Good description online as well so there was no confusion as to if this was a 2 or3 conductor wire. Wire is of good quality and the fabric covering matched the online color exactly. The wire shipped quickly and was delivered about 5 days after I ordered it. Customer service was very quick to respond via email with my questions. I will buy again with confidence. Nice to find an outlet to buy specialty wires for my custom electrical projects.

    Excellent cloth covered cord

    I needed a high quality cloth covered cord to replace a 1920 era power cord for a player grand piano. The cord I purchased from Color Cord Company was an excellent compliment to the meticulous restoration that I am doing on a very fine Mason & Hamlin Ampico B piano. Thanks for the excellent product!
