The soft sheen on this bead cord marks it as high quality 100% silk. It comes in an earthy orange color called cornelian. This No. 14 cord is made exclusively from high-grade natural silk filament. The card comes with two meters of silk already threaded with a flexible needle. Griffin uses a specific manufacturing process for their silk cord that puts just the right amount of tension on the thread and avoids tangling and knotting.
