This garnet 100% silk Griffin bead cord is characterized by a rich red coloring. Its .30mm diameter allows you to use it for beads with very small holes. Try using it to string Czech glass beads or colorful freshwater pearls. The thread is approximately 79 inches long and comes pre-threaded onto a flexible stainless steel needle. Doubling the thread is unnecessary, and the cord can be easily knotted because the thread has the correct twist. Feel free to browse for other Griffin silk cord.
