Silamide is a 2-ply twisted nylon thread that is a great alternative to Nymo for beadweavers. It is also popular among quilters for its range of colors and strength. Used primarily for beadweaving, this thread is especially good for twisted fringe.

"I use all the Silamides for seed beading. They don't get tangled or knotted as easily as the Nymo thread. The colors are true and the thread is flexible. A great combination. I love Silamide"

"I love Silamide for a variety of bracelets I make. The color range is pretty good (though they need to come out with a real pink!) and the thread is strong. It also doesn't have much give which is great when you want to keep things tight."
