Superlon THREAD Size: AS (.9mm)
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.
If you are making an item such as Bead Shack's Ocean Magic Necklace, you will want to use a thicker Size F Nymo thread.
If you are making an item such as Bead Shack's Shabby Chic Bracelet which has many many passes through the beads, you will be grateful if you use Size O Nymo thread!
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: Superlon 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).
This is what our supplier writes about S-Lon beading thread: "THIS PARALLEL FIBER THREAD WILL FIT THROUGH A #12 BEADING NEEDLE. IT HAS THE FEEL OF NYMO, BUT COMES CLOSE TO THE STRENGTH OF POWER PRO.
