Example of rococo thread. Example of rococo thread.

Rococo is a form of metal thread made from a fine wire tightly wrapped around a cotton core. The cord has a wavy (kinked) serpentine appearance. Rococo is comparable to crinkle cordonnet, but it is not as easy to bend, and the waves in the thread are far more even.

Rococo is normally couched down to the ground material with single threads.
