S-Lon Thread (AS)
S-LON THREAD Size: AS (.11mm)
When considering using this thread, think about your pattern, and how many passes you need to make through your beads, as well as the size of beads. At Bead Shack we use this thread in ASH colour, because we have found it blends in with just about every colour bead. This colour is a MUST HAVE in your beading kit. It's more inconspicuous than a grey thread and possibly will only show up on really dark beads, or reds & greens. You will find you can use it for just about everything else!
Tip: Using thread that is too thick when bead weaving can risk breaking your beads when pulling your needle through, if the hole in the bead is too full with previous thread passes.
Tip: S-Lon reels have a little colour code in the centre of the reel, either red or blue. The thinner size AA has a blue code (the photos however show red).
