NYLONS > C-LON® BEAD THREAD SIZE D > Go to Size AA
Rings made with C-lon Bead Thread

C-Lon Bead Thread Size D 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).

Available in Single Bobbins,

or as Full Collection in a Box

C-Lon Bead Thread comes in two thickness, Size D and Size AA. Size D available below is suitable for use with Delicas, 11/0s, 10/0s, or larger beads. Size AA is thinner and is best for 15/0s. > Go to Size AA.

36 C-Lon + 7 S-Lon colors - Size D - Full Collection - Calico - Waterfall - Sunset Collection

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. This thread is lightly bonded, but not waxed. Adding a coat of Thread Magic and/or beeswax is recommended for many applications.

As of 2023 the factory manufacturing C-Lon Bead Thread Size D will no longer make this thread in any colors other than White. Keep in mind that most of these colors have large inventory stored at the C-Lon warehouse or here at Marion Jewels in Fiber and will be available for a long time. Colors low in stock are marked with Low. Some S-Lon Colors with unique dye lots have been just added. They are made by the same factory as C-Lon. In addition when a C-Lon color is no longer available, we will switch brands if a S-Lon replacement is available. The brand switch will be clearly indicated.

Leather Wrap Bracelet Kit and Tutorial with Tila Beads Rings made with C-lon Bead Thread

Note - This thread is primarily used with seed beads when several passes are necessary and for bead embroidery. It is also great for leather wrap bracelets. C-Lon Bead Thread Size D lays flat when wrapped around the leather cord and beads. It fit easily in an English needle size 10/12, bead embroidery needles Size 10/12 or Tapestry Needles Size 28. Add a coat of beeswax to the ends to make it easier to fit into the needle. This thread can also be used for micro macrame > More

Notes: These S-Lon colors have been starting in March 2023. While looking for color equivalents between the C-Lon and S-Lon brands, I found colors or dye lots unique to the S-Lon brand. The thread for both brands are manufactured in the same factory and the bobbins have the same yardage.

Why are some of these colors numbered and renamed? They are dye lot variations too far from their original colors to retain the same name. Here are the dye lot notes:

S1-Natural is a dye lot variation one tone lighter than Beige and more neutral with a tad less green in its hue. Labeled as Dark Cream by S-Lon.

S2-Linen is a dye lot variation lighter than Ash and more more neutral with a tad less green in its hue. It is low in stock as when I reordered the same color I got a different dye lot now named Sand. Both these dye lots were labeled as Light Brown by S-Lon.

S3-Maize is its own color, a beautiful light gold. If it was a dye lot variation of Gold, then only half of the dye was added to the dye bath. Labeled as Tan by S-Lon.

S4-Lt Maize is a dye lot in between Cream and Dark Cream with a barely noticeable touch of green added in the color mix. Labeled as Cream by S-Lon.

S5-Sand is a dye lot variation similar to Linen but a tad brighter with more gold and less green in its hue. Labeled as Light Brown by S-Lon.

S6-Greige is a dye lot variation close to C-Lon Bead Cord Beige, but not close to C-Lon Bead thread Size D Beige or Ash. Labeled as Ash by S-Lon.

SLD-CB CapriBlue Lighter than C-Lon Capri. In between C-Lon Bead Cord Carribean Blue and Blue Lagoon, whereas CLBD-C Capri is just a tad darker than Blue Lagoon and CLBD-RO Royal Blue is like C-Lon Bead Cord Capri.

SLD-WH White I bought S-Lon White when C-Lon Whitewas out of stock, I cannot tell the difference between the 2 brands.

More Notes - 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, beading thread or cord are not recommended unless the edges are first smoothed out with a 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.
