Superlon Bead Cord

by

Superlon also known as S-lon is a super strong nylon cord used in making Macrame or Kumihimo knotted jewelry. This cord is also exactly like the C-lon micro cord in size 18 gauge which is the most commonly used cord size. This cord will easily pass once through a size 11 bead and twice with a size 8 seed bead. You will not need a needle to thread the beads because the cord is stiff and holds its shape. If you do decide that you need a needle a little clear nail polish or fray check applied on the ends will keep the cords from unraveling. Additionally, since it is typically stiff it will retain its curl when you unspool it. To eliminate this problem I just dampen the cords a little stretch them out and secure it to my knotting surface with pins. When the cords are totally dry I un-pin and the cords are completely straight ready for knotting. This cord is super resilient, fade resistant and tough; it holds the knots incredibly well and has a 34 lb breaking strength. You can be assured that whatever you make will it will last for years.
