SILK THREAD CLASSIFICATION > THREAD SPECS & NOTES
Silks: Griffin Jewe;ry Silk, Kanagawa & Fujix Tire Silk, Madeira Silk Floss

Silk is an amazing protein based fiber, produced by silkworms for their cocoons. It is tough, luminescent and long lasting. Silk is a naturally made product and the quality of the filaments depends on the silk worm race, diet and the climate. The final quality of the silk also depends on the processing of the raw material and the care and skill of the factory where the thread is made.

Filament silk is made out of continuous fiber and is also called reeled silk. Spun silk is made with silk strands of various length that are spun together. The length of the silk stands and the type of thread construction vary.

Not all silk is equal; some silk is hard to manage. Whereas high quality silk is a pleasure to work with. > Check blog posts on Making your own 2-ply cord Griffin Cord with a Needle Attached and Silk Tassels
