Description

A simple, quick way to thread beads. The twisted stainless steel needle is already installed at the end of the cord and saves threading time. You can knot the cord easily because the thread has the correct twist. Approx. 79 inches (2 meters) of thread per card, which is enough for a necklace with a knot between each bead.

Pure natural silk feels incredibly soft and smooth. Silk threads have good tensile strength and little stretch, which make them the ideal choice for many works and knotting. Necklaces made with natural silk drape naturally along the contours of the body and always project a look of elegance and beauty.

GRIFFIN 100% Natural Silk only ever originates from the high-quality centre (filament silk) of the silk cocoon thread and is twisted three times. Only this sleek thread has the characteristic lustre and the irresistible natural beauty of pure natural silk. GRIFFIN has been manufacturing silk thread and cord from the best of the best since 1866.

Made in Germany. By the pack of 2 m.

Silk Thread

For pearls, or items where the thread is part of the design. Very soft and luxurious feeling and glossy with a soft sheen, really changes colour depending on the angle you look at it. Silk is arguably the most beautiful natural fiber in the world. This is a smooth, twisted three-ply, 100% pure silk thread.  Extremely supple, yet resistant to stretch and wear.  Durable enough to withstand the abrasion of pearls, glass beads, and gemstones. 

It is with a heavy heart that we have to say good-bye to Champion silk. Champion - long a staple of bead stringing - was make by Gudebrod, who sadly have closed their doors for the final time and the assets have been sold off.

In it's place - we are pleased to presend Dazzle-It brand silk thread. While the range of colours is not yet particularly extensive, it comes in a wide variety of widths, and it means that we once again have access to the very handy "card with 6 feet of silk and a needle" - which we have all missed!

Traditionally, pearls were knotted to keep them from rubbing on each other, and if the thread broke, you only lost one instead of the entire strand. ;-) Transparent stone or glass beads can be strung on a deeper self-colour to make their colour look richer. Try Rose Quartz on Strawberry Pink to see what we mean!
