Griffin Jewelry Silk has a very clean profile, no lint, or broken filament sticking out. Yardage vary depending on the cord size.
Make a 2-ply cord out of this silk, attach a collapsible needle at its end, and you have the same exact cord offered by Griffin on cards. The Griffin ready made cards only come in length of 79 inches - 2 meters on each card. This is often too short for longer necklaces, crochet neckpieces and other applications, so ply your own in the length you desire with a mini-twister or other twisting methods. Mini-twisters are available in the Tool Section.

Personal Note - Silk is getting harder to get and it is still the best choice for projects requiring the soft hand of silk. This silk is specifically produced as a bead cord. It is very smooth and strong and has just enough colors to work with many gemstones and glass beads. As of March 2016 this silk has been discontinued, I will keep restocking what's available and look for a substitute silk. If ordering large quantities of the same color and size, email for quantities available. Thanks!
Note: This item is no longer manufactured. See note above.
