Tuff-Cord, strong thread for beads and jewelry making
This American-made super-thread has countless uses and it is known to be stronger than nylon or silk. The thread is made of 3 braided synthetic fibers, which provide maximum strength. The thread does not stretch over time and does not fray, a true favorite among many jewelry designers. Tuff-Cord is so stiff that it can be used directly on beads without a needle. If you want to use it double, we recommend using a split needle. Tuff-Cord is a good alternative to Tiger-tail pearl wire, as it is more flexible and, for example, allows you to make knots on it without compromising on strength.
