Product Description

!!!!!----- This item is priced by the foot, so please adjust your quantity accordingly. -----!!!!!

!!!!!----- Example: If you want 10 feet of wire, enter 10 in the quantity box, and you will get one 10' length of wire.!-----!!!!!

The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful fabric covered electrical wire is a great way to replicate that vintage industrial age charm.

This is BRAND NEW, antique style 3-wire, 16 gauge stranded copper electrical cord (known as 16/3, Note: this is a thicker gauge than the rest of my wire which is 18 gauge, hence the slightly higher price). The 3 wires allow you to use a ground wire, although many lighting situations won't require one, in which case just clip the green wire and leave it unused. This overbraid cord differs from regular 3-wire round pulley cord in look because it is NOT completely round, instead the 3 wires are twisted around each other and then covered in the braided fabric, leaving the texture of the twist beneath it visible. 

Specs:
  • Fabric: Cotton
  • Max: 600 Volts, 105 Degrees Celsius
  • Diameter: 6.8mm, or about 1/4"
  • UL: No
  • Made in USA

3 wire overbraid cord is available in: black, and green/yellow weave, see our other items! We have over 40 varieties of cloth covered wire available.

Plugs shown not included, but are available in the "Plugs" section

Suitable for: 
Table-top, floor, and pendant use as well as many other applications, include wiring fans and small appliances. Wire is not intended to carry a heavy electrical load, and should not be used for larger appliances, high heat settings, or to carry other large electrical currents. You are responsible for the safe use of these products, if you are unsure of your abilities or the requirements of your application, we recommend you consult with an electrician or qualified professional. A simple rewiring can really breathe new life into an old fixture, if you're unsure of how to do it there are many step by step instructions and videos that can be found online, it's easier than you think!

  1. Great hard to find product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 19th 2016

    This is a great option to use when you want that ground option on a fancier piece. This is a heavier duty wire that works very well. Cloth covering is nice and wires are good quality. The covering is not shiny its a nice cotton look.
    Glad I found this here, I could not locate it anywhere else.
