The classic cord used for traditional knotting and floats, Griffin has been making silk-on-cards in Germany since 1866. Starting with 100% natural silk, they twist the fiber three times to create their distinctive rope thread. Each card is 2 meters (approximately 79 inches) with a twisted stainless steel needle attached. Matching bead holes to knot size is more of an art than a science. We suggest buying all three sizes and having the flexibility to experiment...often, it’s trial and error! Since silk can stretch, we recommend pre-stretching.

In general:

  • Size  #2 Cord = Diameter of .45mm with a knot approximately 0.7mm
  • Size #4 Cord = Diameter of .60mm with a knot approximately 1.0mm
  • Size #6 Cord = Diameter of .70mm with a knot approximately 1.2mm
