Our Recommendation:

What to buy as a beginner:

  1. Splitting the pliesFour or more of our cotton cords in different colors.
             Buy Cords
  2. A Gripfid or a set of three Gripfids.
             Buy Gripfids
  3. Book, Ply-Split Braiding an Introduction.  
             Buy Book
  4. See our Shopping Catalog for these and other items.

Before buying any of these, read our page on "Getting Started in Ply-Split Braiding".  After you give it a try and find how much fun it is, you will ultimately want to come back to buy your own cord maker and more advanced books.  Or you can take an intermediate step of buying more cords  for larger projects like mats, necklaces, and baskets.

And don't forget to look for classes in your area.  Here are the ones we know about: Classes
