Tie and wrap with the best! Pearsall silk is made with long fiber raw Chinese silk, a traditional thread that is used by both fly tyers and rod makers. In fly-tying applications, it offers better translucency, iridescence and color when wet. Jasper color is variegated black and orange, but the orange looks like camel brown. 126 denier, 45 meter spool.

Silk is a great alternative to nylon thread for rod building, it becomes translucent with the finish and looks amazing. My favorite is white silk which becomes clear with the finish and looks great on a fly rod.

Great Thread

Reviewer: A viewer from Midland, MI US

This is awesome for soft hackles! no floss just thread and a hackle! This stuff is top quality. Pretty fine but very strong! Looks great when wet also!

Reviewer: A viewer from Grand Rapids, MI US

Although this tread is great for tying flies, i prefer to wrap guides with it. it has a lower breaking strength than nylon, however, its small diameter alls you to use almost twice the amount of wraps. great stuff.

Great thread!

Reviewer: A viewer from Enkoping, Uppland SE

The thread is great to work with. I use this for rod wrapping and although its not as strong as many nylon threads i prefer it because the result is so much smoother and "thighter" with this silk thread. This thread is not easy to come by here in Sweden. Im really happy its possible to import it from the US!
