Too stiff for Prusik

I bought this cord originally from REI for use as prusik cord for crevasse rescue. However when I opened it I immediately could tell that it was too stiff for use as a prusik and after testing it on my 10.5 rope it just slipped through. So I instead put a double fisherman's knot in it and converted it to a cordelette.
