Our Currant premium cloth covered electrical wire has a great texture, flexibility, and feel. It’s one of the most popular hues in our Shine Collection, which is full of bold colors that all have a luxurious, shiny finish. If you’re looking for the perfect cord color to pair with rose gold hooks, canopies, and socket covers, this rich berry red lends unique sophistication to any project. This cloth covered wire is available by the foot, so customize your order to ensure you get as much or as little as you need!
The electrical wire under this cloth covering has three conductor wires including ground, positive, and negative. They’re insulated first by a PVC housing, and over that lies the braided rayon cloth. Due to our commitment to safe, high quality products, this cloth covered wire is UL listed and rated for 300V.
Please Note: Because of the traceability requirements for UL listed products, returns are not accepted for cut-to-order purchases. Please confirm the specifications of this wire to ensure you get exactly what you need. If you’re not sure about the color, we offer sample orders to allow you to see the color in person before making a final decision.
If your project requires a 2-conductor cord, it’s easy to clip the third wire (green) since you will not be using that one. If you’re choosing this option, consider ordering 1-2 feet more than what you need in order to compensate for the length cut and wire stripping.
Using Our Wire
While we love enthusiastic DIYers as much as professional contractors, we always recommend consulting with an expert before assembling your new fixtures. They can give you the best advice on max weight rating, the length you need for your specific project, and details on how to use our cloth covered wire as a two-conductor cord.
