The traditional 100% Pure Wool prayer ropes are carefully hand-made by the Sisters with even knots, using 2-ply, 3-ply and 4-ply yarn. The 2-ply yarn makes the smallest knots and shortens the overall length while the 4-ply has the largest knots and the longest overal length. Colors available vary for each of the plys and are shown on the product pages below. 3-ply ATHOS wool, which is imported from Greece, is available only in traditional black.
Each variety of wool prayer rope comes in three styles: Russian--on which there is a bead after every 10 knots and a tassel below the cross, Greek--which has a bead after every 25 knots and no tassel, and Greek with accents--which is adorned with additional metallic accent beads. Photographs of the different styles are shown on each product page.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy one me!
