From Gudebrod, one of the world's finest textile manufacturers, comes Champion-brand metallic braided thread. Made of Mylar, an extraordinarily strong polyester film designed for strength and durability, this versatile, sparkling thread has superior strength, heat resistance and excellent insulating properties for extra long-wearing jewelry and fashion accessories. Available in an array of colors and three different braid types including HT braid, round braid and electra braid.
HT braid is an acid-free, high tensile-strength ribbon available in two strand counts: 10-14 count for needlepoint projects and 7-10 count for plastic canvas.
Round braid is highly versatile, as well as durable, and can be easily sewn into cross-stitch patterns and needlepoint projects, in addition to basic stringing, knotting and macramé use.
Electra braid cord has a highly reflective holographic surface that radiates a brilliant array of light and shimmering pearlescence. The wide, flat braid is ideal for wrapping around tubing and memory wire for jewelry-making and other wide surfaces for home décor projects.
