A Lovely Suggestion ...
From a stranger at the yarn shop (where I'd gone to see about what I understand now is properly called 'cordage').
If you have drawstring anything, and the drawstring has eroded, you can replace it with SHOELACES.
Yes, it works just fine, and the eyelet bit makes it easy to thread through, for example, trousers.
I work fine with a set of 54" work boots, for example.
