YLI Silk Sparkle Rod Wrapping Thread
Metallic/Nylon thread 100 meter spools for rod wrapping and tipping
Silk Sparkle wraps and tipping look great on any rod - bamboo, fiberglass, or graphite.
YLI combines 100% silk 100 wt 3/0 twisted with one strand of Gold or Silver Fine Metallic Nylon Thread. The resulting thread is approximately 50wt size A on 100 meters spools.
Similar look to antique Jasper thread style.
Looks great with either varnish or epoxy finishes.

TIPS: Wrapping with the Silk Sparkle thread is as straight forward as with solid colors, with one small difference. The tread is 2 ply and requires a lighter thread tension. Start with a very light tension and work your way up to what feels comfortable to you. The thread looks great with any variety of finishing techniques.
