Griffin Silk #3 Bead Cord, Carded with Needle, Gray
Item Number: 635531
Carded silk, traditionally used for stringing pearls, is easy to work with and, because the needle is strung onto Griffin® cord, you have a strand that’s ready to use. Silk stretches less than synthetics and knots consistently and evenly. Strands strung on silk lay nicely on the wearer. Each card includes an attached needle and six feet of silk cord.
