C-Lon Micro Bead Cord Tex 70 was originally produced in 320 yd spools. The production was shifted to 100 yard spools, allowing more colors to be made in this size. Some of the colors are still available in both spool sizes. As of 2023 the factory manufacturing C-Lon Micro Cord will only produce 30 colors in 300 yd spool size. 18 colors will no longer be made and are discontinued and marked with Disc. 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. Discontinued colors low in stock will be marked with Disc+Low. Currently no color is low in stock.
Notes - I use Nylon #69/C-Lon Micro Cord in conjunction with Nylon #18/C-Lon Bead Cord for stitching, wrapping, finishing and hidden construction. I also occasionally use this size to do part of a piece, such as the micro-knotting of a mini cabochon for a very small gemstone with need of a very high count of knots per square inch. It is also a great thread for beading fine beads with small holes such as many of the semi-precious and precious faceted beads. One of my customer made several wallets with beaded panels woven on a loom with nylon #69 about 15 years ago. Her wallets have been in use everyday for over 15 years with no sign of wear!
