The previous owner of my loom cut all the treadle cords when they dismantled it. As it's a genuine antique, I'd like to replace them with the same sort of stuff, but I have no idea what it's proper name is. It's 3-ply, about 3mm thick and appears to be jute. The surface is surprisingly smooth, it looks like the ridges have been literally ironed out!
Googling "treadle cord" is not producing anything useful. Can anyone here point me in the right direction please?
