Our DIY Twisted Pair Wire by the Foot in gunmetal is a specialty wire that is generally used in restoration applications. Uses for this 2-conductor cloth-covered wire are very limited but especially suitable when restoring vintage-style fixtures with modern components or creating pendants with antique charm. However, this wire is not UL Listed. All of our cord is sold by the foot so you can order as much as you need for your project.
This twisted wire features two parallel wires surrounded by a jacket and an insulated cover finished with colored rayon cloth which is then twisted. We recommend ordering 1-2 feet more than you need to compensate for length cuts and wire stripping. Max weight rating is dependent on the final application and assembly.
Please note: Since this wire is cut to order, we do not accept returns. It is imperative that you confirm the specifications and color of this wire are suitable for your project prior to ordering. Due to various monitor settings and calibrations, colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. In addition, the tightness of the twist may vary from variances in the wire fabrication. You can order a sample to see the color and twist in person.

This cord looks so good! It has an organic nautical rope vibe. The instructions were easy and it looks great. I attached it to baskets to create light in a high ceiling living room.
