S-Lon is a strong parallel fibre nylon beading thread with a flat cross-section (it is nice and easy to thread through the eye of a beading needle – size 12). It is an all purpose thread which is preconditioned and has a lovely ‘silky’ feel but is much stronger than Nymo.
This amazing thread has almost no stretch! It can be used for all kinds of beadwork: Peyote stitch, Loom beading, off loom projects, netting and other multi pass bead stitches.
The Size D bobbin holds approximately 71 metres of thread. S-Lon D thread measures approx 0.012mm in thickness and will fit through a size 12 beading needle.
