Today the wife found something interesting online and wanted to try it; she took some of my audio cables and coated them with yarn. Basically it amounts to tying a knot of yarn around the end of the cord and looping it tightly around the length of the cable until the other side is reached, tying another knot to secure it once the wrapping is done.
One of the cables has already come unraveled, but the other cables have a heavier and more permanent feel to them. By more permanent, I mean the tendency of things NOT made of plastic to last longer (or at least seem so). I see plenty of wood and metal things in antique stores that are easily a hundred years old but not many plastic things (I also have to realize that plastic things may not have been around for 100 years)...
What I would like to know is whether or not there is a way to weave cloth around wire. The goal here is to increase durability of the cloth sleeve and at the same time decrease the amount of time taken to sheathe the cloth. These goals might be mutually exclusive and the whole thing might even be an exercise in futility. Still, out of all the people in these groups I figure someone must know something I don't.
