Griffin's Silk Bead Cord, No. 5 is perfect for your favorite beads. Soft and smooth, each 100% silk cord has a twisted stainless steel needle at one end, which saves threading time and makes picking up seed beads a pleasant pursuit! Doubling the thread is unnecessary, and the Cord is neatly plied and easy to knot. Each package contains approximately 79 inches (a little more than 2 meters) of cord. The thickest Silk Bead Cord we carry, we used size No. 5 in our Beads + Tassels Necklaces Kit!
