TUFF NYLON BEAD CORD > STRINGTH
BACK TO ALL NYLONS > OTHER NYLON #18 & BEAD CORD > C-LON - D&E/MASTEX - BEADSMITH - CONSO

The Tuff Nylon Bead Cord is a 3 ply twisted bonded cord made from long nylon filaments available in 16 colors and several sizes. It will not stretch or stain, and resists fraying and shredding under most condition. The Tuff Bead Cord can be used for simple or complex beading projects, micro-macrame, bead crochet, cord making, kumuhimo braiding, half-hitching, Cavandoli tapestry knotting...

The Size 5 is comparable to the C-Lon Bead Cord, D&E/Mastex Nylon #18 and Conso Nylon #18. Most colors are available in Size 1, 3 and 5. Some colors are available in Size 2. Only Black and White are available in Size 0,and White in Size 6 and 7. This brand was created for bead stringing with a small output of 1/4 ounce (7.08 g). The thread is pre-stetched and spooled without tack on plastic spools with covers to keep the thread dust-free. The thread comes out of the spool without any marks or creases so ironing the creases away and pre-stretching can be omitted.

Tuff Nylon Bead Cord is also sold under other labels such as Stringth and Silkon, but be aware that the spools under these other labels are spooled by yard, not weight, making price comparison a little more difficult.

Personal Note - I have used this thread for years, even though it costs a bit more than other brands. It is a good choice for beads stringing as the cord is pre-stretched and its high bond level makes the cord abrasive resistant, or if you need a color in several sizes not available in other brands. Tuff Bead Cord is very popular due to its quality, even ply, and bond strength.

16 colors - Select Size - Spooled by weight on plastic spools with cover. Yardage varies depending on thread Ø. For sizes available and yardage, see chart. Made in the USA.


$3.95 per spool - ¼ oz (7.08 g) per spool - Select Size
