Beautifully rich color. This paracord is a beautiful tight weave sleeving. Feels so smooth and soft and sleeves easily. We used the custom 16AWG wire and had no issues at all and plenty of room. Some colors have the core and some do not. Not to worry though, it is just too easy to remove and it helps keep the cord round until your ready to use it. If this fits your color scheme, you will love it!
