The new C-Lon® Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex 135 is the latest addition to the C-Lon family as of Feb 2010. As its siblings, the C-Lon Bead Cord (standard weight), the C-Lon Micro Cord (extra fine weight) and the C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord (heavy weight), it is a bonded 3 ply twisted multi-filament thread Tex 135 with diameter of 0.4mm and a 24 lb breaking strength. It can be used for micro macrame, stringing beads and other techniques such as bead crochet, finger weaving, kumihimo, tatting as well as many other uses where a strong bonded nylon is required. It is an especially good size for fine beads, for crochet ropes and kumihimo with seed beads size 8/0 and smaller.

Personal Note - I welcome the addition of C-Lon in this size as colors have been limited to the Tuff Bead Cord Size 3 and vintage cords not longer produced. It is a great size to work with when the standard size of C-Lon Bead Cord is too big, and C-Lon Micro Cord too thin.
