The C-Lon Micro Cord is a bonded 3 ply twisted multi-filament thread with diameter similar to nylon #69 and size E nylon thread. The Micro Cord is great for stitching, wrapping, finishing, hidden construction, and micro-knotting/macrame with a high count of knots per square inches. It is also a great thread for stringing beads, kumihimo or bead crochet with small holes beads (15/0s, 11/os, semi-precious and precious faceted beads). It can also be used as a a warp or weft thread for loom or for off-loom bead weaving where a twisted thread is desired. The colors match the C-Lon Bead Cord, C-Lon Fine Weight Bead Cord Tex 135 and C-Lon Tex400 Bead Cord, so it's great for projects that require different sizes of thread. >

Personal Note - I use Nylon #69/C-Lon Micro Cord in conjunction with Nylon #18/C-Lon Bead Cord. It is great for stitching, wrapping, finishing and hidden construction. I also occasionally use it to do part of a one of a kind piece, such as the micro-knotting of a mini cabochon for a very small gemstone with need of a very high count of knots per square inch. It is also a great thread for beading fine beads with small holes such as many of the semi-precious and precious faceted beads out on the market right now. One of my customer made several wallets with beaded panels woven on a loom with nylon #69 about 15 years ago. Her wallets have been in use everyday for over 15 years with no sign of wear!
Note - This type of thread was originally designed for heavy industrial sewing, upholstery and other sewing applications that require a strong durable thread. C-Lon Micro Cord is produced for the bead, micro macrame & fiber jewelry world, and is great for many other applications including industrial sewing.
