Fireline is pre-waxed braided bead thread consisting of gel-spun polyethylene. This is the thread to use for all stringing which require extra strength or multiple passes, but involves beads with small holes. This super strong, flexible, pre-waxed braided bead thread incorporates new technology. One of the strongest fibre cords per diameter ever created. Beaders will find that this product feels and works better than the finest bead thread, yet is as strong as jewellery wire. Most beads will not cut this product. It does not stretch, it knots easily and will pass through a No.12 beading needle. 6lb, 0.006 inch average diameter.
