Perlseide silk thread, by Griffin (Germany), is specifically designed for stringing pearls. The twisted stainless steel needle at the end of the cord saves threading time. You can knot the cord easily because the thread has the correct twist. Approx. 79 inches (2 meters) of thread per card. Virtually no stretch.
How to Choose your Perlseide
- The size you will use is based on the hole of the pearl, not the size of the pearl.
- The silk should fit through the hole TWICE. This is most important. If it is a very tight fit and you have to tug a lot to get the silk through the pearl the second time you are best to go down a size.
- If you are mixing different pearls together, make sure you check each different type - you will need to choose the thread that fits twice through the smallest holed pearl.
- Use FRENCH WIRE to protect the silk thread from the clasp
