Angry Fish brand super-strong, braided, 4-strand polyethylene fishing line makes an excellent beading thread. Available in a generous 100m (approx. 108 yards) spool, which represents a much better value than some of the more well-known lines. This thread has limited stretch, high knot strength, superior abrasion resistance, excellent drape and flexibility, and needs no conditioning.

Available in two sizes: 0.12mm and 0.16mm, to correspond roughly with Size AA and Size D beading threads, and can be used with #10 or #12 beading needle, or ‘Big Eye’ needle.

Standard scissors will generally not cut braided line. Fiskars scissors suitable for this thread can be found here.

It can be used with a size 12 needle or equivalent.  It is a silky, lightweight, durable beading thread, with a breaking point of 4lbs.
