I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'silk item that goes with cords' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's a link between them I don't understand?

'a jumper?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'a' could be 'an' and 'an' is present in the answer.
The remaining letters 'copy' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'and' acts as a link.
