The C-Lon Bead Thread is a nylon thread. It is the standard weight beading thread for peyote, square stitch and bead weaving (on and off loom) with seed beads and English beading needles. With a 7 pound test strength, it is exceptionally strong for its size and has a high resistance to abrasion. C-Lon is suitable for use with 11/0s, 8/0s, and 6/0s. This thread is primarily used for seed bead designs when several passes are necessary and for bead embroidery. It is also great for wrapped leather bracelets.
