Description

This traditional rod wrapping silk thread is the larger diameter cousin of Gossamer silk thread used for fly tying and traditional rod building. It is equivalent to a 4/0 thread compared to Gossamer's 6/0 size, so it covers with fewer winds and gives a little more texture to the wrap. The colors are a great compliment to bamboo rods, for either restoration or a new rod in the traditional style. Jasper color is variegated black and orange, but the orange looks like camel brown. Most colors come 50 yds. on a spool, with a few 45 yds. to the spool.

Varnish vs Epoxy

Reviewer: A viewer from Aliwal North, Eastern Cape ZA

Excellent product which I can advise anyone serious about getting great results to purchase. I have found that using an PU Varnish (like Perma Gloss) on the silk gives me better results than the normal finishing epoxies though.

Great silk

Reviewer: A viewer from Grand Rapids, MI US

The best silk available. A bit heavier than other silks makes naples silk easier to work with. I like to use this for wrapping the main wraps and then use the really fine silk (gossamer) for a four-turn trim wrap. great colors!

just awesome

Reviewer: A viewer from Missoula, MT

I love using this silk for wrapping because when you coat it with epoxy, it becomes see through with a little bit of color and looks great. Its a little tougher to wrap than standard thread because its so thin but you'll be happy you used it!
