THREAD

BEAD CORD



#69 on Bobbins (similar to Nymo G, or Griffin Size #2, or C-Lon Micro Bead Cord)
NOTE: 2008: The thread is not currently available, and as we sell out, assume it will be gone for awhile. Check out the C-Lon Micro Bead Cord as a good substitute.


Thicker: 2 ounce (apprx 170 yards) Spools (a little thicker than Gudebrod or Beadsmith 100% Silk E, similar to Griffin Size #6, and C-Lon #18 Bead Cord)

 


This upholstery thread (really a bead cord) is a heavy, twisted thread yet supple and flexible. Use bobbins with size 8�-11� beads where you need a really stiff tension, or spools with size 6/0-8/0 beads. It's also perfect for stringing our large Czech pressed glass beads (those are the leaves, hearts, drops, triangles, pendants, etc.) You'll find that a milliner's or other sewing needle is easier to use with Conso than a true beading needle which has a long narrow eye. For stringing, use a Big Eye or twisted wire needle or dental bridge floss.

Excellent for bead crochet or netting projects which are to stand alone. Can be used to warp loom. Less stretchy than Nymo, and results in stiffer project.

Conso is sold on bobbins (thinner thread) and spools (thicker cord).
