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.
Spools conveniently fit into the YLI Clear Spool Tubes for easy storage.

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.
