Nylon thread has a luster and twist unlike any other product. It produces fantastic stitch definition as well as a hand with full but flexible body. Nylon's key attributes are shine, durability and receptiveness to dyes; the colors are vivid! Size 2 nylon can be substituted for many apparel and home decor items. It really shines with loosely knit or crocheted shawls, wraps and accessories as well as tightly crocheted items. Also fantastic for knit or crocheted jewelry and standard jewelry. 100% nylon, 275 yds. Machine wash, dry flat.
