Carded Nylon Bead Cord - #0 is approximately interchangeable with .010 beading cable and 28 gauge wire.
We've been selling this carded nylon for over 2 decades now, and prefer it's strength and resilience (and washability) over silk, and I personally have not had to re-string any of my necklaces since. And one more awesome thing - you can burn the cord with a lighter or Thread Zap to end it, so no more waiting for the glue to dry! Yippee!
Griffin carded nylon is a strong specially treated nylon with double the tensile strength of conventional nylon.
It stretches only about 3 – 4% under tension and will return to its original length when released.
Each card contains two meters (approx. 79 inches) of thread with a stainless steel needle attached at one end.
