FireLine Braided Bead Thread - 4 LB Size B
Fireline is a pre-waxed, braided cord consisting of gel-spun polyethylene which is one of the strongest fibers, per diameter, ever created. It has an unbelievably high tensile strength and has been recommended in numerous how-to articles on beadworking. It is manufactured by the Berkley company, which is known for producing fishing line and other supplies. Obviously, fisherman need extremely strong line and this bead thread is a slightly lighter weight than what they produce for the fishing industry. So if this is strong enough to hold a struggling fish, it’s going to be more than strong enough for your beading projects!
We carry this in a 4 LB weight which is approximately 0.006 inch in diameter. It’s about the same size as “B” Nymo and will fit a #12 beading needle. Available in Crystal and Smoke Grey.
