NYLONS > C-LON® BEAD THREAD Size D > Size AA

The C-Lon Bead Thread is a nylon monocord thread available in 36 colors. It is the standard weight beading thread for peyote, square stitch, bead weaving on and off loom, bead stitching and embroidery with seed beads and English beading needles and a better alternative to Nymo thread size D (Nymo was originally created for the shoe industry). Unlike its siblings the C-lon Bead Cord and C-Lon Micro Cord, this thread does not have any twist or plies, it is like a floss and it appears flat and ribbon like. It is exceptionally strong for its size and has a high resistance to abrasion. It is UV resistant and vat-dyed, the color does not rub off. The vat-dyeing process involves high heat and pressure which forces the dye completely through the thread resulting in a permanent dye. It comes in two thickness, Size D and Size AA. Size D is suitable for use with Delicas, 11/0s, 10/0s, or larger beads. Size AA is thinner (so not as strong as D), and is best for 15/0s.

80 yards - 73 m - Tex 45 - 7 lb breaking strength - Bobbin size 1" in Ø by 3/8" (2.5cm x 1cm) - Made in the USA

Rings made with C-lon Bead Thread

Personal Note :: This thread is primarily used for seed beads when several passes are necessary and for bead embroidery. It is also great for wrapped leather bracelets with leather cord and beads. The C-Lon Bead Thread Size D lay flat when wrapped over the leather cord. It fit easily in an English needle size 10/12, bead embroidery needles Size 10/12 or Tapestry Needles Size 28. Adding beeswax to the ends to thread the thread into needles works well. Waxing the full length of the thread is optional, but not necessary.

This thread can also be used for micro macrame > More

More notes :: When looking for an alternative to silks for double half hitching, I found it behaves like a silk floss, with the advantages of lower cost and better stain resistance. I would recommend its use for Cavandoli style knotting over C-Lon Bead Cord or Nylon #18. In solid double half hitches knotting it works well as the knotting cord only, not as the anchor cord. In the cabochon rings posted here, I used it doubled or tripled and may have done one or two rows of vertical double half hitches as shown on the rings shown in the photo above.

Beeswax :: Additionally you may want to pre-wax the thread with beeswax. It makes the thread longer lasting and easier to work with.

Unlike hybrid cable beading thread, C-Lon Bead Thread is soft and flexible. It can be used with sharp edge beads such as Swarovski crystals as long as the heaviest weight thread is used and the work is reinforced by passing through the beads several times. Of course if the bead edges are too rough, beadind thread or cord are not recommended unless the edges are first smoothed out with e bead reamer.

About colors :: While every attempt was made to reproduce thread colors accurately, colors on your monitor may not precisely match actual thread colors. Dye lots from manufacturer may vary!

About shopping cart :: Quantities are automatically set at 1 when you add items to the shopping cart. To change quantities, just change the number in the shopping cart window to quantity desired and update the cart.
