hoopsteel 14 mm wide X .6 mm thick
14mm wide hoop wire, 1/2" wide

hoopsteel 14 mm wide X .6 mm thick
Price per Meter C$4.25
Special Instructions: Buy 50 meter coil and save

Product Code: 50-8406-14

Hoop wire that is 14mm(slightly more than 1/2inch) wide X .55mm thick, this is our strongest hoop steel which is capable of supporting large hoops and heavy fabrics without collapsing. It cannot be used for the tighter curves as required by a bustle.

You will want to use this hoop wire when making a farthingale to support the heavy upholstery fabric often used for Elizabethan skirts. This hoop steel will help create and maintain the shape you desire without getting bent out of shape or rusting! Walk through narrow doorways, sit in a car...or anywhere else and just get up and walk away with no fuss. If you need strong support and longevity from your hoop petticoat this is the right product - you may never need to replace the garment you make with this. Scroll down to see "hoop connectors" to make the hoop making easy.

You need to order full meters of this product as the system does not accept decimals. If you want 25.5 meters you will need to round up to 26.

Note: 1 meter is 3 inches longer than 1 yard

Great products, perform as expected September 7, 2016
Reviewer: Sarah from MA United States  
Not my first time purchasing steel from Farthingales, and I hope it won't be the last.  They are my go-to for all my hoop and corset-making supplies.  Great products, and great discounts buying in bulk. Friendly service.

Impossible to cut July 21, 2016
Reviewer: Taylor from Ontario  
The product itself is very nice and the coating is great. If I ever figure out how to cut it, I'm sure it will be fantastic in use. However, this website states that this product can be cut with tin snips, but my brand new tin snips didn't even dent the metal. They just cut through the plastic coating.

This is the best quality hoop steel on the market so it is strong and durable...and a challenge to cut. We use Wiss Brand tin snips with serrated jaws (the serrations are very subtle). Leveraging the handle against a table can also help. Hoops made from this product will last for years so if you need longevity this is the product to use. It might be worth asking someone for help - it might be your tool, but it may also be a strength issue as many people don't have strong hands.

very sturdy! April 2, 2016
Reviewer: Candice O'Connell from Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada  
Blown away by the recoil of this stuff! The zip tie holding the steel together snapped when I took it out of the bag and...well my kitchen table was instantly cleared off haha! Back to business, this boning is fantastic, it holds the weight of my gown no problem. Really fun to sway back and forth in.
(Used for making cage hoop skirt)
