hello knot tyers...
...you can find some nice cotton cord for making the
Nantucket Sailor's Bracelets on eBay...enter: "waxed
cotton"....there are quite a few folks who are selling
this cord in about a dozen+ colors....2mm(+-)
...(notice the "red to port, green to starboard" and
"navy blue" colors !!)

  http://www.ebay.com/

...i use Marlow Whipping Twine to seize the ends of these
bracelets...you can use No. 2 (white) or No. 4 (colors) ...i use
the "common whipping (seizing)" and a "tapestry" needle (large
eye and very dull point)....i get my Marlow Whipping Twine at:

Hathaway, Reiser & Raymond, Inc.

Dan ~  very nice suggestion for the colored waxed twine.  I've done these in JimaLax and Marty Comb's white cotton, but colors are always a hit with the ladies in my life....

Thanks too for the source for Marlow's twine.  I picked some up at a marina in Annapolis MD and it was more expensive than the online source.

Hope all is well in AK!

Cheers!
