Rosary Making Supplies

Looking for Medals, Crucifixes, and Twine for making all-twine knotted Rosaries? Rosary Army doesn’t provide supplies, but because we give away our Rosaries for free, and we depend on people like you to donate Rosaries, we’ve done our best to find the least expensive vendors for twine and Crucifixes. If you’ve found them cheaper, let us know!

Please note that Rosary Army receives no proceeds from sales of twine, Crucifixes, starter kits or other supplies and we have no official affiliation with any of these suppliers. We merely offer these links for your convenience.  For questions regarding products or purchases from these companies, please contact them directly.

For current prices and color selection, please be sure to visit the separate websites for the various twine providers as Rosary Army’s list will only be updated a couple times a year.

Rosary Twine Suppliers:

Our Lady’s Rosary Makers

They now sell nylon twine in 1-pound spools for a very inexpensive price, but please note that because these are OLRM mission supplies, any rosary made with these materials must be given away and not sold.

Nylon Net offers a good supply of solid color twine, and they’ve committed to providing even more colors. They sent us a few samples and the twine made good, solid Rosaries. Some of the twine is dyed colors (but still very nice) and some of it is made from pre-dyed filament. Please be sure to support them, and be sure to tell them Rosary Army sent you!

Bulk Crucifixes

Note: If you’re going to donate your Rosaries to Rosary Army, you can send them with or without the Crucifix (just make the complete Rosary except for the last knot, leave about a foot of twine at the end, and we’ll add a nice metal Crucifix before giving your Rosary away for you).

All of the Rosaries we give away have metal Crucifixes on them (instead of plastic Crucifixes or knotted crosses). We order most of our medals and Crucifixes from Our Lady’s Rosary Makers or Autom Online Catalog because they’re the least expensive distributors we’ve found of bulk religious items.

Crucifix Suppliers:

Our Lady’s Rosary Makers
www.OLRM.org
Note: OLRM offers a great .14-cent metal Crucifix that is great for all-twine knotted Rosaries, but requires a separate metal jump-ring that must be attached manually to each individual Crucifix.
Catholic Parts Rosary Crucifixes
Catholic Parts sells several mission crucifixes, including some styles with jump rings included from $0.17 each.

Autom Catalog
www.automonline.com
Note: Unfortunately, Autom has expensive shipping charges, and many of their items are often on back order. But some of our favorite rosary crucifixes that Autom sells can be found here:

Crosses For Mary
www.crossesformary.com
Here you can find black plastic crucifixes in bulk if you are interested in making rosaries specifically for the military and wish for Rosary Army to provide them on your behalf.
