This listing is for a TEN YARDS of Blue PTFE TENARA® thread in the very thin, very strong, size M100TR weight thread - comparable to size 92 polyester thread. The 10 yards will come in one piece, wrapped neatly and without kinks.
This color goes beautifully with Pearls or silver beads.
See my other listings for Red and Black color options.
An 8 oz. spool of Tenara™ will cost you $100 or more - 10 yards will allow you to experiment and test your designs, including braiding, crocheting and knotting, without the hefty investment.
Gore-Tex™, also called Tenara™, is an incredibly strong synthetic thread that used for for sewing weather resistant items such as ski parkas and massive sails. It is impervious to salt, sun & sweat, won't fray, and has a great drape (perfect for jewelry that lays next to the skin, at the pool or beach!).
Tenara is lubricated and has just enough body to go through the tiniest bead holes without a needle. Use jeweler's glue to hold the knot.
You can see some beautiful examples of crocheted Tenara in the jewelry designs of Jill Platner (see necklace photos).
Its durability and ease of use makes excellent for stringing pearls and other valuable gems, for use with leather, and making Chan Luu style wrap bracelets.
