Hi Sarah,
I dont know what that is called. But i was thinking about you know how you 
can twist threads into rope like embellishments.
You cut your thread 4 times as long as you want your rope and then you fold 
it 1 time. Hold in the end and start to twist in the other end. When you 
have twisted your thread many times, it will start to wind itself, when you 
fold it again. This can be very beautifull.
