This is the finest quality tight-woven silk or nylon cord available. 6.5 feet (2 meters) of brilliantly died, color-fast cord per card with needle attached. Simply take the needle from the card and off you go! The twisted stainless steel needle saves threading time. Doubling the thread is not necessary. There is no simpler, quicker or better way to thread beads!
