A guide to using DuraThread in your beadwork
DuraThread is a hybrid thread, it’s not fused like Fireline but is much stronger than Nymo or s-lon. This results in a much softer thread that gives a beautiful soft and fluid drape to your finished jewellery.
DuraThread is particularly good for fringe work and pieces where where you need a softer finish.
As DuraThread is not fused it’s important to cut your DuraThread with very sharp beading scissors, this will create a neat ending and make for easy threading – cutting with damaged or blunt scissors will result in frayed ends.
