The new C-Lon® Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex 135 was added to the C-Lon family in 2010. As its siblings, the C-Lon Bead Cord (standard weight), the C-Lon Micro Cord (extra fine weight) and the C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord (heavy weight), it is a bonded 3 ply twisted multi-filament thread Tex 135 with diameter of 0.4mm and a 24 lb breaking strength. It can be used for micro macrame, stringing beads and other techniques such as bead crochet, finger weaving, kumihimo, tatting as well as many other uses where a strong bonded nylon is required. It is an especially good size for fine beads, for crochet ropes and kumihimo with seed beads size 8/0 and smaller.
As of 2017, production is shifting to 50 yard spool, allowing more color to be made in this size. Black and White will continue to be available in both the 136 yd spools and the 50 yd spools. During the transition, some of the colors are available in both spool sizes.

Thread Ø 0.4mm - Tex 135 - Z Twist - 24 lb breaking strength - Made in the USA
Personal Note - I welcome the addition of C-Lon in this size as colors have been limited to the Tuff Bead Cord Size 3 and vintage cords not longer produced. It is a great size to work with when the standard size of C-Lon Bead Cord is too big, and C-Lon Micro Cord too thin.
Note - The C-Lon Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex 135, although designed for the bead, micro macrame & fiber jewelry world, is a thread that can be used for many other applications including for industrial sewing.
