Silamide thread from The Beadsmith is a two-ply waxed and twisted beading thread that is a great alternative to Nymo thread for bead weaving, looming, and stitching. It is also popular among quilters, tailors, and other sewers for its strength. This thread is especially good for twisted fringe, too. It is strong and resilient with very little stretch, so it will hold up in your jewelry and craft designs. This 40-yard card features a bright white color.
Silamide A, Approx. 40 yards

Perrfect size
By mumzi on February 3, 2011

I had purchased extra fine beading needles and some thread from a small Mom and Pop craft store years ago. Recently I started some loom work with 11 beads and ran out of thread. It took me awhile to find a size that fit both my needles and beads, and this is great. Thanks Art Beads for great products and fast shipping!

adds structure to seed motifs
By OrdoAbChao on February 3, 2011

This is the first time I tried Silamide, up until now I had used waxed quilting thread, Nymo and some cheapo stuff from the dollar store. You can wax those materials 'til the cows come home, and it still doesn't "stick", so when you are doing seed beading you have to go back every few inches of your work to "re-loop" so the work won't start to slip away and get loose. I tried using dental floss to overcome this, and it does stick to itself, but it is relatively thick and it doesn't have the engineeering to take the bending and flexing that happens with bracelets and necklaces; in time it frays and breaks =( Silamide is the best of both worlds; it is compact like nymo, but sticks to itself like floss. I had a great time making seed bead flowers; they had the structure and cohesion I was aiming for in the design. Best of all, this stuff is SUPER EASY TO GET INTO THE NEEDLE!!

use it in all my seed bead projects
By gailanne on September 7, 2009

This thread is pliable, tangles very little and is my favorite thread when doing beadwork, especially since I like to work in size 15's. I used nymo with beeswax about 18 or 20 years ago but the beeswax is rancid and yellowing now. Some of those projects have just not lasted. The staying power of the silamide is much better. I like the spools, which seem to last forever. Gailanne
